Doppler-based planet surveys have discovered numerous giant planets but are incomplete beyond several AU. At larger star–planet separations, direct planet detection through high-contrast imaging has proven successful, but this technique is sensitive only to young planets and characterization relies upon theoretical evolution models. Here we demonstrate that radial velocity measurements and high-contrast imaging can be combined to overcome these issues. The presence of widely separated… Expand
The TRENDS High-contrast Imaging Survey. VIII. Compendium of Benchmark Objects
The physical properties of faint stellar and substellar objects often rely on indirect, model-dependent estimates. For example, the masses of brown dwarfs are usually inferred using evolutionaryExpand
The TRENDS High-Contrast Imaging Survey. VI. Discovery of a Mass, Age, and Metallicity Benchmark Brown Dwarf
The mass and age of substellar objects are degenerate parameters leaving the evolutionary state of brown dwarfs ambiguous without additional information. Theoretical models are normally used to helpExpand
Joint Radial Velocity and Direct Imaging Planet Yield Calculations. I. Self-consistent Planet Populations
Planet yield calculations may be used to inform the target selection strategy and science operations of space observatories. Forthcoming and proposed NASA missions, such as the Wide-Field InfraredExpand
Limits on Planetary Companions from Doppler Surveys of Nearby Stars
Most of our knowledge of planets orbiting nearby stars comes from Doppler surveys. For spaced-based, high-contrast imaging missions, nearby stars with Doppler-discovered planets are attractiveExpand
High-Contrast Imaging of Intermediate-Mass Giants with Long-Term Radial Velocity Trends.
TLDR
The Kozai mechanism can explain the high eccentricity of the inner planets ι Dra b, HD 5608 b, and HD 14067 b and is found to be responsible for the RV trends observed around the six giants. Expand
Imaging Extrasolar Giant Planets
High-contrast adaptive optics imaging is a powerful technique to probe the architectures of planetary systems from the outside-in and survey the atmospheres of self-luminous giant planets. DirectExpand
Constraining the Frequency of Free-Floating Planets from a Synthesis of Microlensing, Radial Velocity, and Direct Imaging Survey Results
A microlensing survey by Sumi et al. (2011) exhibits an overabundance of short-timescale events (STEs; t_E ~10 AU) and free-floating planets. Assuming these STEs are indeed due to planetary-massExpand
Synthesizing Exoplanet Demographics from Radial Velocity and Microlensing Surveys. II. The Frequency of Planets Orbiting M Dwarfs
In contrast to radial velocity (RV) surveys, results from microlensing surveys indicate that giant planets with masses greater than the critical mass for core accretion (∼0.1 M {sub Jup}) areExpand
Hints for a Turnover at the Snow Line in the Giant Planet Occurrence Rate
The orbital distribution of giant planets is crucial for understanding how terrestrial planets form and predicting yields of exoplanet surveys. Here, we derive giant planets occurrence rates as aExpand
Synthesizing Exoplanet Demographics from Radial Velocity and Microlensing Surveys. I. Methodology
Motivated by the order of magnitude difference in the frequency of giant planets orbiting M dwarfs inferred by microlensing and radial velocity (RV) surveys, we present a method for comparing theExpand
