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 imager for Keck. aimed at detecting the Infrared 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.
