Paper Abstract

Recent works on interferometric beam recombination techniques for direct imaging have triggered studies for using them as exo-planet hunting instruments. This work describes these techniques and study their specific aspects, such as image formation (on- and off-axis), field contamination by nearby sources and their suitability for exo-planet detection in combination with coronagraphic/nulling techniques. Ongoing plans to implement them in a mid-term future are outlined.
