Deep Keck Adaptive Optics Searches for Extrasolar Planets in the Dust of Eridani and Vega

Abstract

A significant population of nearby stars have strong far-infrared excesses, now known to be due to circumstellar dust in regions analogous to the Kuiper Belt of our solar system, although orders of magnitude more dense. Recent submillimeter and millimeter imaging of these systems resolves the circumstellar dust and reveals complex structures, often in the… (More)
