The Gemini Planet Imager (GPI) is the dedicated high-contrast imaging facility, located on Gemini South, designed for the direct detection and characterization of young Jupiter mass exoplanets. In 2019, Gemini is considering moving GPI from Gemini South to Gemini North. Analysis of GPI's as-built performance has highlighted several key areas of improvement to its detection capabilities while leveraging its current capabilities as a facility class instrument. We present the proposed upgrades… Expand
The Gemini Planet Imager: looking back over five years and forward to the future
The Gemini Planet Imager (GPI), a coronagraphic adaptive optics instrument designed for spectroscopy of extrasolar planets, had first light in 2013. After five years, GPI has observed more than 500Expand

The Gemini Planet Imager (GPI) is a high-contrast imaging instrument designed to directly image and characterize exoplanets. GPI is currently undergoing several upgrades to improve performance. InExpand
Moving the Gemini planet imager to Gemini North: expectations and challenges
After more than 4 years of operation it’s expected that the Gemini Planet Imager (GPI) will move from Gemini South (GS) to the Gemini North (GN) telescope sometime in 2019. Though both telescopes areExpand
GPI 2.0: optimizing reconstructor performance in simulations and preliminary contrast estimates
TLDR
Using high temporal resolution Fourier Optics based simulations, phase reconstruction approaches that attempt to optimize the performance of the sensor with a dynamically adjustable modulation parameter with linearity and gain stability under different modulation and seeing conditions are investigated.

GPI 2.0: design of the pyramid wave front sensor upgrade for GPI
After more than six years of successful operation at Gemini South, the Gemini Planet Imager (GPI) will be moved to Gemini-North. During this move, the instrument will undergo a series of upgrades.Expand
High contrast imaging with ELT/METIS: The wind driven halo, from SPHERE to METIS
METIS is one of the three first-light instruments planned for the ELT, mainly dedicated to high contrast imaging in the mid-infrared. On the SPHERE high-contrast instrument currently installed at theExpand
Origin of the asymmetry of the wind driven halo observed in high contrast images
The latest generation of high contrast instruments dedicated to exoplanets and circumstellar disks imaging are equipped with extreme adaptive optics and coronagraphs to reach contrasts of up toExpand
A feasibility study of the open source DARC RTC software as a baseline for a generic Gemini AO RTC
TLDR
A feasibility study was undertaken to asses the suitability of the open source DARC RTC software as a baseline for the Gemini AO systems and to influence the procurement of an externally developed CPU-based RTC to provide for current and in-development Gemini AOs and to act as a template for future systems.

First light of the Gemini Planet Imager
TLDR
Observations ofBeta Pictoris clearly detect the planet, Beta Pictoris b, in a single 60-s exposure with minimal postprocessing, and fitting the Keplerian orbit of Beta Pic b using the new position together with previous astrometry gives a factor of 3 improvement in most parameters over previous solutions.
