STIM map: detection map for exoplanets imaging beyond asymptotic Gaussian residual speckle noise

Abstract: Direct imaging of exoplanets is a challenging task as it requires to reach a high contrast at very close separation to the star. Today, the main limitation in the high-contrast images is the quasi-static speckles that are created by residual instrumental aberrations.

Reference-less algorithm for circumstellar disks imaging

Abstract: Circumstellar disks play a key role in the understanding of stellar systems. Direct imaging of such extended structures is a challenging task. Current post-processing techniques, first tailored for exoplanets imaging, tend to produce deformed images of the circumstellar disks, hindering our capability to study their shape and photometry in details.
