Abstract
We describe the present status of the development of a very high-dynamic range, diffraction limited imaging instrument FIRST (Fibered Imager foR Single Telescope), among which goals is the detection of nearby extra-solar planets at visible to near-infrared wavelengths from the ground. We have started to develop a prototype system which consists of a number of novel designs such as a segmented micro mirror array and silicon micro machined single-mode fiber arrays. Furthermore, we have proposed to build a FIRST instrument for the CFHT, which will be complementary to high-dynamic range instruments developed for 8m class telescopes at near-infrared wavelengths.
