Paper Abstract

High angular resolution imaging with adaptive optics (AO) has allowed significant progress in the study of disks and companions around stars over the past decades. This technique is also expected to lead to major breakthroughs in the next 10 years. We review the results obtained so far with AO and their impact on the understanding of how planetary systems form and evolve.
