[47.17] Detection of Extra Solar Zodiacal Dust Emission with the MMA

R. S. Simon (NRAO)

The current plans for the Millimeter Array hold the promise that this instrument will be capable of detecting dusty disks around nearby stars with high spatial resolution. While systems with dust levels comparable to that in our own Solar system are to faint to be detected, systems with dust of 100 times solar values will be detectable. For the dustiest systems known, imaging of the inner parts of the dusty disks will be possible.

In this paper I present the results of the expected emission from a complete set of nearby stars.
