Science with ExAO on a 25 m telescope

Exoplanets in Reflected Light

GMagAO-X will be able to study a large number of the currently known (mainly form RV surveys) nearby exoplanets in reflected light.
Figure 1. Characteristics of known exoplanets which GMagAO-X will be able to study in reflected light. Left: with pessimistic performance of the instrument, and using the High-Dispersion Coronagraphy (HDC) cross-correlation technique. Right: with optimistic performance characteristics, and using plain-old Aperture Photometry (AP).
