Direct imaging of exoplanets and protoplanetary disks is a powerful tool to investigate planet formation. Thanks to state-of-the-art technologies, we have explored planets and disks around young stars with various spectral types. Subaru/SCExAO, a high contrast instrument with extreme AO system, will employ a new near-infrared wavefront sensor soon. This new capability enables us to observe fainter objects at a higher Strehl ratio, including class I objects such as HL Tau, very low mass stars with 0.1 Mo, and distant objects such as disks in Orion. We will be able to compare the results of SCExAO and ALMA, especially for fainter objects. In addition, planet hunting for these objects at high contrast is also possible.
In this workshop, we will share recent results taken by visible/NIR telescopes and ALMA, and will discuss science cases with future synergies of these telescopes.
Science topics are disk structures and young planets including accretion and circumplanetary disks.
All talks will be recorded and shared among participants.
