Paper Abstract

Various radial velocity surveys have now produced a number of candidates Very Low Mass Stars, Brown Dwarfs and Giant Extrasolar Planets to nearby G, K and M dwarfs. Building upon our experience in High Angular Resolution imaging, radial velocities measurements and atmosphere modeling, we discuss the detectability of Brown Dwarfs and Extrasolar Giant Planets with AMBER--the near-infrared instrument of the VLTI--using differential interferometry in low spectral dispersion mode.
