Context. Although debris discs have been detected around a significant number of main-sequence stars, only a few of them are known to harbour hot dust in their inner part where terrestrial planets may have formed. Thanks to infrared interferometric observations, it is possible to obtain a direct measurement of these regions, which are of prime importance for preparing future exo-Earth characterisation missions. Aims. We resolve the exozodiacal dust disc around Vega with the help of infrared… 
Studying hot exozodiacal dust with near-infrared interferometry
Since our first detection of a resolved near-infrared emission around the main sequence star Vega, which we identified as the signature of hot dust grains close to the sublimation limit, we have been
A near-infrared interferometric survey of debris-disk stars
Context. Hot exozodiacal dust has been shown to be present in the innermost regions of an increasing number of main sequence stars over the past 15 yr. However, the origin of hot exozodiacal dust and
Exozodiacal clouds: hot and warm dust around main sequence stars
Abstract A warm/hot dust component (at temperature 300 K) has been detected around 20% of A, F, G, K stars. This component is called ‘exozodiacal dust’ as it presents similarities with the zodiacal
Modelling of mid-infrared interferometric signature of hot exozodiacal dust emission
Hot exozodiacal dust emission was detected in recent surveys around two dozen main-sequence stars at distances of less than 1au using the H- and K-band interferometry. Due to the high contrast as
Prospects for the characterisation of exo-zodiacal dust with the VLTI
Exo-zodiacal dust, exozodi for short, is warm (∼300 K) or hot (up to ∼2000 K) dust found in the inner regions of planetary systems around main sequence stars. In analogy to our own zodiacal dust, it
Hot exozodiacal dust: an exocometary origin?
Context. Near- and mid-infrared interferometric observations have revealed populations of hot and warm dust grains populating the inner regions of extrasolar planetary systems. These are known as
CONSTRAINING THE EXOZODIACAL LUMINOSITY FUNCTION OF MAIN-SEQUENCE STARS: COMPLETE RESULTS FROM THE KECK NULLER MID-INFRARED SURVEYS
Forty-seven nearby main-sequence stars were surveyed with the Keck Interferometer mid-infrared Nulling instrument (KIN) between 2008 and 2011, searching for faint resolved emission from exozodiacal
A near-infrared interferometric survey of debris-disc stars - III. First statistics based on 42 stars observed with CHARA/FLUOR
Context. Dust is expected to be ubiquitous in extrasolar planetary systems owing to the dynamical activity of minor bodies. Inner dust populations are, however, still poorly known because of the high
Hot circumstellar material resolved around β Pic with VLTI/PIONIER
Aims. We aim at resolving the circumstellar environment around β Pic in the near-infrared in order to study the inner planetary system (<200 mas, i.e., ~4 AU). Methods. Precise interferometric
The bright end of the exo-Zodi luminosity function: disc evolution and implications for exo-Earth detectability
We present the first characterisation of the 12µm warm dust (‘exo-Zodi’) luminosity function around Sun-like stars, focusing on the dustiest systems that can be identified by the WISE mission. We use

Context. Only a handful of debris disks have been imaged up to now. Due to the need for high dynamic range and high angular resolution, very little is known about the inner planetary region, where
