Description

Context: T Cha is a young star surrounded by a cold disk. The presence of a gap within its disk, inferred from fitting to the spectral energy distribution, has suggested on-going planetary formation. Aims. The aim of this work is to look for very low-mass companions within the disk gap of T Cha. Methods. We observed T Cha in L′ and Ks with NAOS-CONICA, the adaptive optics system at the VLT, using sparse aperture masking. Results. We detected a source in the L′ data at a separation of 62 ± 7...[Show more]
