Author Affiliations +
The paper motivates the science requirements for high-contrast imaging illustrated by actual observation results. After an introduction to the high-contrast-imaging problem composed of extreme adaptive optics, coronagraphy, wave-front control an post-processing, the state-of-the-art will be reviewed putting emphasis on existing instruments and those that are near completion: LBT-FLAO, Magellan Mag AO, Palomar P3K / P1640, Subaru SCExAO, Gemini GPI, and VLT SPHERE.
