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.
