Abstract

We propose to robustly and routinely measure the masses of exoplanets beyond 1 AU from their host stars with the microlensing method, by directly imaging the host star with ELTs. A direct result from this project will be planet occurrence rate beyond the snow line, which will enable us to discern different planet formation mechanisms.
