" The brown dwarf desert between 5 and 50 AU probed by combined direct imaging and radial velocity "
(IfA/University of Geneva)
I will present the results of the completed direct imaging campaign for stars with radial velocity drifts
in the HARPS and CORALIE planet-search surveys. Using the radial velocity data which spans over more
than a decade, we selected promising targets for direct imaging of sub-stellar companions to solar-type
stars. The direct imaging observations were carried out on VLT/NaCo using the angular differential
imaging technique. By combining the constraints from direct imaging and radial velocity we derived
the frequency of brown dwarfs around sound like stars in the 5 to 50 AU range.
Seminars are also held at JAC,
