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
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
DETECTION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF EXOPLANETS AND DISKS USING PROJECTIONS ON KARHUNEN–LOÈVE EIGENIMAGES
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
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
TLDR
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
TLDR
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
FUNDAMENTAL LIMITATIONS OF HIGH CONTRAST IMAGING SET BY SMALL SAMPLE STATISTICS
In this paper, we review the impact of small sample statistics on detection thresholds and corresponding confidence levels (CLs) in high-contrast imaging at small angles. When looking close to the
Morphological Component Analysis: An Adaptive Thresholding Strategy
TLDR
This paper shows how the MCA convergence can be drastically improved using the mutual incoherence of the dictionaries associated to the different components.
