Abstract

We present ground-based mid-infrared observations of Class 0 protostars in LDN 1448. Of the five known protostars in this cloud, we detected two, L1448N:A and L1448C, at 12.5, 17.9, 20.8, and 24.5 μm, and a third, L1448 IRS 2, at 24.5 μm. We present high-resolution images of the detected sources and photometry or upper limits for all five Class 0 sources in this cloud. With these data we are able to augment existing spectral energy distributions for all five objects and place them on an evolutionary status diagram.
