Probing the Discs of Herbig Ae/Be Stars at Terrestrial Orbits
No. 178 (December 2019), 38–40
More than 4000 exoplanets are known to date in systems that differ greatly from our Solar System. In particular, inner exoplanets tend to follow orbits around their parent star that are much more compact than that of Earth. These systems are also extremely diverse, covering a range of intrinsic properties. Studying the main physi- cal processes at play in the innermost regions of the protoplanetary discs is crucial to understanding how these planets form and migrate so close to their host. With GRAVITY, we focused on the study of near-infrared emission of a sample of young intermediate- mass stars, the Herbig Ae/Be stars.
