Abstract

The Gemini Planet Imager (GPI) is a next-generation coronagraphic integral field unit with the sensitivity and resolution to detect planetary companions with separations of 0 . 2 to 1 . 0 around a large set of stars. An 890-hour GPI survey of 600 young, nearby stars commenced in late-2014, and approximately 100 stars have been observed thus far. The central aims of the program are:(1) the discovery of a population of giant planets with orbital radii of 5-50 AU comparable to Solar System gas giant orbits,(2) the characterization of the ...
