Finding accreting exo-planets with MUSE

Jarle Brinchmann

Planets are thought to grow by accreting from a proto-planetary disk, but this crucial stage in the growth of a planet can be very hard to study. Here I will report on a novel use of the MUSE integral field spectrograph to find accreting planets in transition disks and show the successful detection of two accreting planets in the PDS70 system.
