Keck Planet Imager And Characterizer

(KPIC)
(proposed noise-reducing planet imager for Keck)

The Keck Planet Imager And Characterizer (KPIC) is a proposed Near Infrared (NIR) imager for Keck Observatory. aimed at detecting the Infrared (IR) light from young Gas Giant Extra Solar Planets. It will facilitate Speckle Suppression techniques, and "clean up" incoming infrared for the existing Keck infrared instruments.
