“Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to invite you to the next virtual seminar organized by the ExoplaNAts team next Monday, 17th of May, at 16:30

Join the seminar via Google Meet at:

TITLE: SPHERE: extreme AO and high-constrat imaging at the VLT

SPEAKER: Dr. Matias Jones F. (SPHERE Instrument Scientist.
European Southern Observatory)

In this lecture I will present the Spectro-Polarimetric High-contrast Exoplanet REsearch instrument (SPHERE) at the VLT.
I will first review the entire instrument, including all four sub-instruments. Then I will describe the main observing and reduction techniques, and the achievable contrast as a function of the angular separation. Finally I will present the main science cases and the main results obtained since the beginning of operations in 2014.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The Exo-plaNAts Group
