High-contrast imaging
Direct high-contrast imaging is a complementary technique to detect and characterize exoplanets in a parameter space inaccessible with transits or radial velocities. Young giant planets are bright in the infrared as they emit latent heat from their formation. High-contrast imaging is thus particularly suited to provide direct in-situ observations and ...
