Faustine Cantalloube (MPIA) on High-contrast imaging of exoplanets and circumstellar disks
High-contrast imaging of exoplanets and circumstellar disks: from the instrument to the data analysis.

Faustine Cantalloube (MPIA)

High-contrast imaging is one of the most challenging observational techniques in the visible infrared. It requires the best adaptive optics systems installed on the largest ground-based telescopes, advanced coronagraphs design, and dedicated image processing techniques. Thanks to the second generation of high-contrast instruments, such as VLT/SPHERE partially developed at MPIA, we now understand subtle effects stemming from the atmospheric turbulence and interacting all the way through the instrument, which drive the final performance of the instrument. This knowledge turns out to be of great interest in the context of the design of the future 40-m class telescopes instrument suite. In this talk, I will give an overview of exoplanet imaging from an instrumental perspective.
