About 4 arcsec south of the young A0-type star HR 7329, a faint companion candidate was found by Lowrance et al. Its spectral type of M7-8 is consistent with a young brown dwarf companion. Here we report 10 new astrometric imaging observations of the pair HR 7329 A and B, obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope and the Very Large Telescope, aimed at showing a common proper motion with high significance and possible orbital motion of B around A. With 11 yr of epoch difference between the first…

Characterization of the gaseous companion κ Andromedae b - New Keck and LBTI high-contrast observations

Context. We previously reported the direct detection of a low mass companion at a projected separation of 55 2 AU around the B9 type star Andromedae. The properties of the system (mass ratio,

New observations of the PZ Tel system, its substellar companion and debris disc⋆

We present follow-up high-contrast imaging data of PZ Tel B, the substellar companion of a solar analogue pre-main-sequence star and member of the approximately 12-Myr-old β Pic moving group. Between

The near-infrared spectral energy distribution of β Pictoris b

A gas giant planet has previously been directly seen orbiting at 8-10 AU within the debris disk of the ~12 Myr old star {\beta} Pictoris. The {\beta} Pictoris system offers the rare opportunity to

Astrometric follow-up observations of directly imaged sub-stellar companions to young stars and brown dwarfs

The formation of massive planetary or brown dwarf companions at large projected separations from their host star is not yet well understood. In order to put constraints on formation scenarios we

We present a detailed characterization of 2MASS J04435750+3723031, a low-mass companion orbiting the young M2 star 2MASS J04435686+3723033 at 7.″6 (550 au) with potential membership in the 23 Myr β

FURTHER EVIDENCE OF THE PLANETARY NATURE OF HD 95086 b FROM GEMINI/NICI H-BAND DATA

We present our analysis of the Gemini/NICI H-band data of HD 95086, following the discovery of the planet HD 95086 b in L′. The H-band data reach a contrast of 12.7 mag relative to the host star at

A survey of young, nearby, and dusty stars conducted to understand the formation of wide-orbit giant planets - VLT/NaCo adaptive optics thermal and angular differential imaging

Context. Over the past decade, direct imaging has confirmed the existence of substellar companions on wide orbits from their parent stars. To understand the formation and evolution mechanisms of

Direct Imaging of Extra-solar Planets - Homogeneous Comparison of Detected Planets and Candidates

Planets orbiting stars other than the Sun are called extra-solar planets or exo-planets. Since about 1989, several hundred such objects were detected using various techniques. The first companions
