Abstract / Description:The Mid-Infrared ELT Imager and Spectrograph (METIS) will be the mid-infrared instrument for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT). It will provide diffraction limited imaging, high and low-resolution spectroscopy and phase mask coronography. Our science case for this instrument aims at direct detections of exoplanets and the study of their physical and chemical properties. We plan to observe a sample of M-dwarfs in the solar neighbourhood. In case of a direct detection of an exoplanet, we will conduct spectroscopic follow up observations with the low-resolution spectrograph provided by METIS.
