Direct characterization of young giant exoplanets at high spectral resolution by coupling SPHERE and CRIRES+

Studies of atmospheres of directly imaged exoplanets with high-resolution spectrographs have shown that their characterization is predominantly limited by noise on the stellar halo at the location of the studied exoplanet. An instrumental combination …

Bringing high-spectral resolution to VLT/SPHERE with a fibre coupling to VLT/CRIRES+

Atmospheric composition provides essential markers of the most fundamental properties of giant exoplanets, such as their formation mechanism or internal structure. New-generation exoplanet imagers, like VLT/SPHERE or Gemini/GPI, have been designed to …


Combining high contrast imaging with high dispersion spectroscopy
