We present first results from the Palomar Adaptive Optics Survey of Young Stars conducted at the Hale 5 m telescope. Through direct imaging we have discovered a brown dwarf and two low-mass stellar companions to the young solar-type stars HD 49197, HD 129333 (EK Dra), and V522 Per and confirmed a previously suspected companion to RX J0329.1+0118 (Sterzik et al.), at respective separations of 0.″95 (43 AU), 0.″74 (25 AU), 2.″09 (400 AU), and 3.″78 (380 AU). Physical association of each binary… 
THE PALOMAR/KECK ADAPTIVE OPTICS SURVEY OF YOUNG SOLAR ANALOGS: EVIDENCE FOR A UNIVERSAL COMPANION MASS FUNCTION
We present results from an adaptive optics survey for substellar and stellar companions to Sun-like stars. The survey targeted 266 F5–K5 stars in the 3 Myr–3 Gyr age range with distances of 10–190

Probing long-period companions to planetary hosts : VLT and CFHT near infrared coronographic imaging surveys
Aims. We present the results of a deep imaging survey of stars surrounded by planets detected with the radial velocity technique. The purpose is to search for and to characterize long-period stellar
The Gemini Deep Planet Survey
We present the results of the Gemini Deep Planet Survey, a near-infrared adaptive optics search for giant planets and brown dwarfs around 85 nearby young stars. The observations were obtained with
Thermal infrared constraint to a planetary companion of vega with the MMT adaptive optics system
Vega may have a massive companion in a wide orbit, as evidenced by structure in its cold dust debris. We have tested this hypothesis by direct imaging with adaptive optics in the M band. The
A Hubble Space Telescope Search for Substellar Companions in the Young Cluster IC 348
We present the results of a search for substellar companions to members of the star-forming cluster IC 348. Using the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 on board the Hubble Space Telescope, we have
Adaptive Optics Photometry and Astrometry of Binary Stars. II. A Multiplicity Survey of B Stars
We carried out a search for companions to B stars using the adaptive optics system of the Advanced Electro-Optical System 3.6 m telescope. We observed 70 B stars in the I band, finding 16 companions,
IMAGING FAINT BROWN DWARF COMPANIONS CLOSE TO BRIGHT STARS WITH A SMALL, WELL-CORRECTED TELESCOPE APERTURE
We have used our 1.6 m diameter off-axis well-corrected subaperture (WCS) on the Palomar Hale telescope in concert with a small inner-working-angle phase-mask coronagraph to image the immediate
