Abstract (from CDS):

We report techniques and results of a Palomar 200 inch (5 m) adaptive optics imaging survey of substellar companions to solar-type stars. The survey consists of Ks coronagraphic observations of 21 FGK dwarfs out to 20 pc (median distance ∼17 pc). At 1'' separation (17 projected AU) from a typical target system, the survey achieves median sensitivities 7 mag fainter than the parent star. In terms of companion mass, this corresponds to sensitivities of 50 MJ(1 Gyr), 70 MJ(solar age), and 75 MJ(10 Gyr), using the evolutionary models of Baraffe and colleagues. Using common proper motion to distinguish companions from field stars, we find that no system shows positive evidence of a previously unknown substellar companion (searchable separation ∼20-250 projected AU at the median target distance).
