Morphological components analysis for circumstellar disks imaging

  title={Morphological components analysis for circumstellar disks imaging},
  author={Beno{\^i}t Pairet and Faustine Cantalloube and Laurent Jacques},
Recent developments in astronomical observations enable direct imaging of circumstellar disks. Precise characterization of such extended structure is essential to our understanding of stellar systems. However, the faint intensity of the circumstellar disks compared to the brightness of the host star compels astronomers to use tailored observation strategies, in addition to state-of-the-art optical devices. Even then, extracting the signal of circumstellar disks heavily relies on post-processing…

Reference-less algorithm for circumstellar disks imaging

Circumstellar disks play a key role in the understanding of stellar systems. Direct imaging of such extended structures is a challenging task. Current post-processing techniques, first tailored for

MAYONNAISE: a morphological components analysis pipeline for circumstellar discs and exoplanets imaging in the near-infrared

Imaging circumstellar disks in the near-infrared provides unprecedented information about the formation and evolution of planetary systems. However, current post-processing techniques for

Impact of angular differential imaging on circumstellar disk images

Context. Direct imaging of circumstellar disks requires high-contrast and high-resolution techniques. The angular differential imaging (ADI) technique is one of them, initially developed for


We describe a new method to achieve point-spread function (PSF) subtractions for high-contrast imaging using principal component analysis that is applicable to both point sources or extended objects

PYNPOINT: An image processing package for finding exoplanets

PynPoint, the Python-based software package that uses principle component analysis to detect and estimate the exoplanets in two dimensional imaging data, shows that the performance of this approach gives a marked improvement over what is presently possible using existing methods such as LOCI.

STIM map: detection map for exoplanets imaging beyond asymptotic Gaussian residual speckle noise

Direct imaging of exoplanets is a challenging task as it requires to reach a high contrast at very close separation to the star. Today, the main limitation in the high-contrast images is the

Non-negative Matrix Factorization: Robust Extraction of Extended Structures

This work applies the vectorized Non-negative Matrix Factorization (NMF) method to post-processing of direct imaging data for exoplanetary systems such as circumstellar disks, and is able to extract some circumstellar material inside the primary ring for the first time.

Angular Differential Imaging: A Powerful High-Contrast Imaging Technique

Angular differential imaging is a high-contrast imaging technique that reduces quasistatic speckle noise and facilitates the detection of nearby companions. A sequence of images is acquired with an

Geometric Separation using a Wavelet-Shearlet Dictionary

A theoretical analysis in a model problem showing that accurate geometric separation can be achieved by `1 minimization is presented and it is proved that curvelets and shearlets are sparsity equivalent in the sense of a finite p-norm of the cross-Grammian matrix.

Speckle Statistics in Adaptively Corrected Images

Imaging observations are generally affected by a fluctuating background of speckles, a particular problem when detecting faint stellar companions at small angular separations. These speckles can be
