Reflected Light from Giant Planets in Habitable Zones: Tapping into the Power of the Cross-Correlation Function


The direct detection of reflected light from exoplanets is an excellent probe for the characterization of their atmospheres. The greatest challenge for this task is the low planet-to-star flux ratio, which even in the most favourable case is of the order of 10−4 in the optical. This ratio decreases even more for planets in their host’s habitable zone… (More)
