A planetary system as the origin of structure in Fomalhaut's dust belt
TLDR
The sharp inner edge and offset demonstrate the presence of planetary-mass objects orbiting Fomalhaut, demonstrating the structure of a dusty disk modified by the gravitational influence of planets. Expand
Optical Images of an Exosolar Planet 25 Light-Years from Earth
TLDR
Optical observations of an exoplanet candidate, Fomalhaut b, show that the planet's mass is at most three times that of Jupiter; a higher mass would lead to gravitational disruption of the belt, matching predictions of its location. Expand
The Gemini Deep Planet Survey
We present the results of the Gemini Deep Planet Survey, a near-infrared adaptive optics search for giant planets and brown dwarfs around 85 nearby young stars. The observations were obtained withExpand
FOMALHAUT'S DEBRIS DISK AND PLANET: CONSTRAINING THE MASS OF FOMALHAUT B FROM DISK MORPHOLOGY
Following the optical imaging of exoplanet candidate Fomalhaut b (Fom b), we present a numerical model of how Fomalhaut's debris disk is gravitationally shaped by a single interior planet. The modelExpand
First light of the Gemini Planet Imager
TLDR
Observations ofBeta Pictoris clearly detect the planet, Beta Pictoris b, in a single 60-s exposure with minimal postprocessing, and fitting the Keplerian orbit of Beta Pic b using the new position together with previous astrometry gives a factor of 3 improvement in most parameters over previous solutions.

Discovery of a Large Dust Disk Around the Nearby Star AU Microscopii
TLDR
The discovery of a circumstellar dust disk surrounding AU Microscopii, a young M star at 10 parsec has the same age and origin as β Pictoris, another nearby star surrounded by a dust disk, providing new clues on how the majority of planetary systems might form and evolve. Expand
A Submillimeter Search of Nearby Young Stars for Cold Dust: Discovery of Debris Disks around Two Low-Mass Stars
We present results from a James Clerk Maxwell Telescope/SCUBA 850 � m search for cold dust around eight nearby young stars belonging to thePic (t � 12 Myr) and the Local Association (t � 50 Myr)Expand
Discovery and spectroscopy of the young jovian planet 51 Eri b with the Gemini Planet Imager
TLDR
Using the Gemini Planet Imager, a Jupiter-like planet is discovered orbiting the ~20-million-year-old star 51 Eridani at a projected separation of 13 astronomical units and has a methane signature and is probably the smallest exoplanet that has been directly imaged. Expand
STIS Coronagraphic Imaging of Fomalhaut: Main Belt Structure and the Orbit of Fomalhaut b
We present new optical coronagraphic data of Fomalhaut obtained with HST/STIS in 2010 and 2012. Fomalhaut b is recovered at both epochs to high significance. The observations include the discoveriesExpand
