Abstract

A large number instruments have specifically been developed to detect, and study extrasolar planets. The number of new, ground-based instruments is already so large that it is not possible discussing them adequately in just one article. I will therefor just outline what the new concepts are, and mention only a few examples that demonstrate what the new instruments will offer to us.

Keywords

Habitable Zone Extrasolar Planet Debris Disk Echelle Spectrograph Stellar Activity 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.

Acknowledgements

I am thankful to José A. Caballero and Roman Follert for their suggestions to the article. Moreover, I acknowledge the support by the International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern, Switzerland and the ISSI team Characterizing stellar- and exoplanetary environments.
