SPHERE-ZIMPOL system testing: status report on polarimetric high contrast results
Techniques and Instrumentation for Detection of Exoplanets VI
SPHERE (Spectro-Polarimetric High Contrast Exoplanet Research) is one of the first instruments which aim for the direct detection from extra-solar planets. SPHERE commissioning is foreseen in 2013 on the VLT. ZIMPOL (Zurich Imaging Polarimeter) is the high contrast imaging polarimeter subsystem of the ESO SPHERE instrument. ZIMPOL is dedicated to detect the very faint reflected and hence polarized visible light (600-900 nm) from extrasolar planets. It is located behind an extreme AO systemdoi:10.1117/12.2023600 fatcat:zzlhycynz5dutngyzdmq4tfcje
