The SPHERE view of the planet-forming disk around HD 100546
We thank Paola Pinilla and Sean Brittain for the fruitful scientific discussion, and the referee for a thorough review that helped improve the text. We are grateful to the ESO technical operators atExpand
Discovery of a planetary-mass companion within the gap of the transition disk around PDS 70
Context. Young circumstellar disks are the birthplaces of planets. Their study is of prime interest to understand the physical and chemical conditions under which planet formation takes place. OnlyExpand
SPHERE: the exoplanet imager for the Very Large Telescope
Observations of circumstellar environments that look for the direct signal of exoplanets and the scattered light from disks have significant instrumental implications. In the past 15 years, majorExpand
Atmospheric characterization of Proxima b by coupling the Sphere high-contrast imager to the Espresso spectrograph
Context. The temperate Earth-mass planet Proxima b is the closest exoplanet to Earth and represents what may be our best ever opportunity to search for life outside the Solar System. Aims. We aim atExpand
SPHERE IRDIS and IFS astrometric strategy and calibration
We present the current results of the astrometric characterization of the VLT planet finder SPHERE over 2 years of on-sky operations. We first describe the criteria for the selection of theExpand
Three Radial Gaps in the Disk of TW Hydrae Imaged with SPHERE
We present scattered light images of the TW Hya disk performed with the Spectro‐Polarimetric High‐contrast Exoplanet REsearch instrument in Polarimetric Differential Imaging mode at 0.63, 0.79, 1.24,Expand
Adaptive Optics Nulling Interferometric Constraints on the Mid-Infrared Exozodiacal Dust Emission around Vega
We present the results of mid-infrared nulling interferometric observations of the main-sequence star α Lyr (Vega) using the 6.5 m MMT with its adaptive secondary mirror. From the observations atExpand
Discovery of a warm, dusty giant planet around HIP 65426
Aims. The SHINE program is a high-contrast near-infrared survey of 600 young, nearby stars aimed at searching for and characterizing new planetary systems using VLT/SPHERE’s unprecedentedExpand
