NACO Young Exoplanet Search with Kernel-Phase

by Mike Ireland
Period 102 is the last even period for NACO, which has a unique L’ capability. Recent work shows that it is possible to obtain very high contrast in the L’ filter without an aperture mask, using Kernel-phase. I am considering an eps Cha association proposal based on this technique, with deep limits for a small number of targets.
