A Giant Planet Imaged in the Disk of the Young Star β Pictoris
Planet Is Born The 10-million-year-old star β Pictoris, has long been suspected to host a planet. Through images obtained with the Very Large Telescope, an array of four telescopes located in Chile,Expand

A Likely Close-in Low-mass Stellar Companion to the Transitional Disk Star HD 142527
With the uniquely high contrast within 0.''1 ({Delta}mag(L') = 5-6.5 mag) available using Sparse Aperture Masking with NACO at Very Large Telescope, we detected asymmetry in the flux from the HerbigExpand

A library of near-infrared integral field spectra of young M–L dwarfs
We present a library of near-infrared (1.1-2.45 microns) medium-resolution (R~1500-2000) integral field spectra of 15 young M6-L0 dwarfs, composed of companions with known ages and of isolatedExpand

A survey of young, nearby, and dusty stars conducted to understand the formation of wide-orbit giant planets - VLT/NaCo adaptive optics thermal and angular differential imaging
Context. Over the past decade, direct imaging has confirmed the existence of substellar companions on wide orbits from their parent stars. To understand the formation and evolution mechanisms ofExpand

Discovery of a Probable 4-5 Jupiter-mass Exoplanet to HD 95086 by Direct Imaging
Direct imaging has only begun to inventory the population of gas giant planets on wide orbits around young stars in the solar neighborhood. Following this approach, we carried out a deep imagingExpand
