System study of EPICS, the exoplanets imager for the E-ELT

Abstract:

ESO and a large European consortium completed the phase-A study of EPICS, an instrument dedicated to exoplanets direct imaging for the EELT. The very ambitious science goals of EPICS, the imaging of reflected light of mature gas giant exoplanets around bright stars, sets extremely strong requirements in terms of instrumental contrast achievable. The segmented nature of an ELT appears as a very large source of quasi-static high order speckles that can impair the detection of faint sources with...
