The SPHERE instrument will explore the close environment of nearby stars in search for other planetary systems. VLT second generation instrument, this high contrast spectro-polarimeter will allow the detection and characterization of exoplanets in outer regions of planetary systems by direct imaging, in a manner complementary to other techniques, including radial velocitiy and photometric transits.
