PYNPOINT: An image processing package for finding exoplanets
TLDR
PynPoint, the Python-based software package that uses principle component analysis to detect and estimate the exoplanets in two dimensional imaging data, shows that the performance of this approach gives a marked improvement over what is presently possible using existing methods such as LOCI.

Gaps in the HD169142 protoplanetary disk revealed by polarimetric imaging: Signs of ongoing planet formation?
We present H-band VLT/NACO polarized light images of the Herbig Ae/Be star HD169142 probing its protoplanetary disk as close as ~0.1" to the star. Our images trace the face-on disk out to ~1.7" (~250Expand
Confirmation and characterization of the protoplanet HD100546 b - Direct evidence for gas giant planet formation at 50 au
We present the first multi-wavelength, high-contrast imaging study confirming the protoplanet embedded in the disk around the Herbig Ae/Be star HD100546. The object is detected at $L'$ ($\simExpand
Orbital and atmospheric characterization of the planet within the gap of the PDS 70 transition disk
Aims: We aim to characterize the orbital and atmospheric properties of PDS 70 b, which was first identified on May 2015 in the course of the SHINE survey with SPHERE, the extreme adaptive-opticsExpand
A YOUNG PROTOPLANET CANDIDATE EMBEDDED IN THE CIRCUMSTELLAR DISK OF HD 100546
We present high-contrast observations of the circumstellar environment of the Herbig Ae/Be star HD 100546. The final 3.8 μm image reveals an emission source at a projected separation of 0. 48 ± 0. ��Expand
Structures in the Protoplanetary Disk of HD142527 Seen in Polarized Scattered Light
We presentH- andKs-band polarized dierential images (PDI) of the Herbig Ae/Be star HD142527, revealing its optically thick outer disk and the nearly empty gap. The very small inner working angle (Expand
HD100546 MULTI-EPOCH SCATTERED LIGHT OBSERVATIONS
We present H, K s, and L' filter polarimetric differential imaging (PDI) data for the transitional disk around HD100546 obtained in 2013, together with an improved re-reduction of previouslyExpand
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
IMAGING THE INNER AND OUTER GAPS OF THE PRE-TRANSITIONAL DISK OF HD 169142 AT 7 mm
We present Very Large Array observations at 7 mm that trace the thermal emission of large dust grains in the HD 169142 protoplanetary disk. Our images show a ring of enhanced emission of radiusExpand
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
