Abstract
A new exoplanet finding algorithm called TLOCI (for Template LOCI) is presented to subtract high-contrast imaging PSFs by “maximizing a companion signal-to-noise ratio”. TLOCI uses an input spectrum and template PSFs to optimize the reference image least-squares coefficients to minimize the flux contamination via self-subtraction of any specific planet in the image, while trying to maximize, at the same time, the noise subtraction. The new algorithm has been developed using on sky Gemini Planet Imager data and has achieved impressive contrast.
