An ALMA view of the post-AGB object HD 101584
Paper i proceeding, 2016

ALMA cycles 1 and 3 observations of CO isotopologues and 1.3mm continuum are used in a study of the circumstellar environment of the binary HD 101584, a post-AGB star and a low-mass companion that is most likely a post-common-envelope-evolution system. These data are supplemented with new information from OH maser emission. It is inferred that the large- scale circumstellar medium has a bipolar hour-glass structure, seen almost pole-on, formed by an energetic, ≥ 150 km s-1, jet. Significant amount of material still resides in the central region. It is proposed that the circumstellar morphology is related to an event which took place ≤ 500 yr ago, possibly a capture event where the companion spiralled in towards the AGB star. Several observed features remain to be explained, and may hint to a more complicated scenario.
