Abstract / Description:The properties of protoplanetary disks seem to show a dependence on the mass of their host stars. Although young brown dwarfs show evidence for gas accretion and the presence of dust-gas disks, our knowledge of their disk mass distribution and structures is relatively limited. Only very few disks around brown dwarfs could be detected at far-infrared and submillimeter wavelengths. The sensitivity and spatial resolution of the Herschel observatory have changed this situation dramatically. We will present the results of a dedicated PACS program to search for far-infrared emission around a statistically significant sample of young brown dwarfs. We detected dust emission both at 70 and even at 160 μm for a relatively large number of objects. We will discuss the relevance of the observational results and highlight measurements of individual sources.
