M-band & K-band AGPMs see first light at Keck

We are excited to announce that our new K-band and M-band AGPMs have just seen their first light on NIRC2 at the Keck Observatory. The new vortex phase masks seem to behave optimally, which -combined with the new set of custom-made Lyot stops- opens new possibilities in terms of exoplanet imaging (especially for not-so-warm planets at M band).
