Using the Gemini Planet Imager located at Gemini South, we measured the near-infrared (1.0–2.4 μm) spectrum of the planetary companion to the nearby, young star β Pictoris. We compare the spectrum obtained with currently published model grids and with known substellar objects and present the best matching models as well as the best matching observed objects. Comparing the empirical measurement of the bolometric luminosity to evolutionary models, we find a mass of 12.9 ± 0.2 , an effective… 
MIRACLES: atmospheric characterization of directly imaged planets and substellar companions at 4–5 μm
The circumstellar disk of PDS 70 hosts two forming planets, which are actively accreting gas from their environment. The physical and chemical characteristics of these planets remain ambiguous due to
Peering into the formation history of β Pictoris b with VLTI/GRAVITY long-baseline interferometry
Context. β Pictoris is arguably one of the most studied stellar systems outside of our own. Some 30 yr of observations have revealed a highly-structured circumstellar disk, with rings, belts, and a
The Gemini Planet Imager Exoplanet Survey: Dynamical Mass of the Exoplanet β Pictoris b from Combined Direct Imaging and Astrometry
We present new observations of the planet β Pictoris b from 2018 with the Gemini Planet Imager (GPI), the first GPI observations following conjunction. Based on these new measurements, we perform a
An Updated Visual Orbit of the Directly Imaged Exoplanet 51 Eridani b and Prospects for a Dynamical Mass Measurement with Gaia
We present a revision to the visual orbit of the young, directly imaged exoplanet 51 Eridani b using four years of observations with the Gemini Planet Imager. The relative astrometry is consistent
Detection of a Low-mass Stellar Companion to the Accelerating A2IV Star HR 1645
The ∼500 Myr A2IV star HR 1645 has one of the most significant low-amplitude accelerations of nearby early-type stars measured from a comparison of the Hipparcos and Gaia astrometric catalogs. This
The mass of the young planet Beta Pictoris b through the astrometric motion of its host star
The young massive Jupiters discovered with high-contrast imaging1–4 provide a unique opportunity to study the formation and early evolution of gas giant planets. A key question is to what extent
New constraints on the HR 8799 planetary system from mid-infrared direct imaging
Direct imaging is a tried and tested method of detecting exoplanets in the near-infrared (IR), but has so far not been extended to longer wavelengths. New data at mid-IR wavelengths (8–20 μm) can
The GJ 504 system revisited
Context. The G-type star GJ504A is known to host a 3–35 MJup companion whose temperature, mass, and projected separation all contribute to making it a test case for planet formation theories and
The β Pictoris b Hill sphere transit campaign
Aims. Photometric monitoring of β Pic in 1981 showed anomalous fluctuations of up to 4% over several days, consistent with foreground material transiting the stellar disk. The subsequent discovery of
