Several exoplanets have recently been imaged at wide separations of >10?AU from their parent stars. These span a limited range of ages ( 0.5?mag), implying thick cloud covers. Furthermore, substantial model uncertainties exist at these young ages due to the unknown initial conditions at formation, which can lead to an order of magnitude of uncertainty in the modeled planet mass. Here, we report the direct-imaging discovery of a Jovian exoplanet around the Sun-like star GJ 504, detected as part… Expand
Direct imaging of an ultracool substellar companion to the exoplanet host star HD 4113A
Using high-contrast imaging with the SPHERE instrument at the VLT, we report the first images of a cold brown dwarf companion to the exoplanet host star HD4113A. The brown dwarf HD4113C is part of aExpand
Direct imaging discovery of a Jovian exoplanet within a triple-star system
TLDR
The location of HD 131399Ab on a wide orbit in a triple system demonstrates that massive planets may be found on long and possibly unstable orbits in multistar systems and the results will be used to refine theories of planet formation. 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
Exoplanet Atmosphere Measurements from Direct Imaging
In the last decade, about a dozen giant exoplanets have been directly imaged in the IR as companions to young stars. With photometry and spectroscopy of these planets in hand from new extremeExpand
THE LEECH EXOPLANET IMAGING SURVEY: CHARACTERIZATION OF THE COLDEST DIRECTLY IMAGED EXOPLANET, GJ 504 b, AND EVIDENCE FOR SUPERSTELLAR METALLICITY *
As gas giant planets and brown dwarfs radiate away the residual heat from their formation, they cool through a spectral type transition from L to T, which encompasses the dissipation of cloud opacityExpand
DIRECT IMAGING DETECTION OF METHANE IN THE ATMOSPHERE OF GJ 504 b
Most exoplanets detected by direct imaging thus far have been characterized by relatively hot (1000 K) and cloudy atmospheres. A surprising feature in some of their atmospheres has been a distinctExpand
An ALMA disk mass for the candidate protoplanetary companion to FW Tau
We present ALMA observations of the FW Tau system, a close binary pair of M5 stars with a wide-orbit (300 AU projected separation) substellar companion. The companion is extremely faint and red inExpand
The VLT/NaCo large program to probe the occurrence of exoplanets and brown dwarfs at wide orbits. III. The frequency of brown dwarfs and giant planets as companions to solar-type stars
In recent years there have been many attempts to characterize the occurrence of stellar, BD and planetary-mass companions to solar-type stars, with the aim of constraining formation mechanisms. FromExpand
Direct Imaging discovery of a second planet candidate around the possibly transiting planet host CVSO 30
We surveyed the 25 Ori association for direct-imaging companions. This association has an age of only few million years. Among other targets, we observed CVSO 30, which has recently been identifiedExpand
Limb-darkening Measurements on Exoplanet Host Stars and the Sun

Images of a fourth planet orbiting HR 8799
TLDR
The HR 8799 planetary system, with its four young giant planets and known cold/warm debris belts, is a unique laboratory in which to study the formation and evolution of giant planets at wide (>10 au) separations. 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

TLDR
It is shown that the ~10-million-year-oldβ Pictoris system hosts a massive giant planet, β Pictoris b, located 8 to 15 astronomical units from the star, which confirms that gas giant planets form rapidly within disks and validates the use of disk structures as fingerprints of embedded planets.
