Using a new infrared pyramid wavefront sensor for adaptive optics correction at the W. M. Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea in Hawaii, a Caltech team of astronomers applied a new method of taking photos of the baby planets, or protoplanets, and confirmed their existence. The National Science Foundation supported the work through a Major Research Instrumentation award to significantly upgrade the adaptive optics system on the 10-meter Keck II telescope.
