This paper describes our strategy and presents the specific additional calibration tool added to the near-infrared focal instrument AMBER of the Very Large Telescope Interferometer, to achieve the direct detection of extrasolar planets with color-differential interferometry. The measurement of the angular orbits, masses and spectra of hot giant extra solar planets can be achieved for Jupiter size planets up to 0.2 a.u. away from a 10 pc distant star, if it is limited only by photon, detector… CONTINUE READING
