Published papers involving SPHERE
- Through ESO Telbib
Note: Only refereed papers already printed will show up for the current year.
- Through ADS
Note: the list of refeered and non-refeered papers returned by this query is not 100% exhaustive, but it includes arXiv e-prints.
During the successful commissioning runs of SPHERE in May, July, August and October 2014, some selected targets were observed to demonstrate the capabilities of the instrument in its three modes – Integral Field Spectrograph (IFS); InfraRed Dual-band Imager and Spectrograph (IRDIS); Zurich imaging polarimeter (ZIMPOL). The most interesting data sets were released publicly: http://www.eso.org/sci/activities/instcomm/sphere.html
Selected Science Results
Although the primary science goal of SPHERE is imaging, low-resolution spectroscopic, and polarimetric characterization of extra-solar planetary systems, it can be used for a variety of science cases. A handful of representative science cases with published work will be added at this page as they become available.
