SPHERE SAM observations of HD 100546. The IRDIS (a) and IFS (b) images were produced with the MIRA package, applied to the closure phases and visibilities, with a hyperbolic regularization term. The images show extended scattered light and an empty gap free of stellar companions. The dashed contour shows the 9σMEM level from the I1.3 mm continuum image. (c) IRDIS 5σ contrast curve for SAM observations in K1K2 band. A contrast of ∼7 mag is achieved between 50 and 200 mas.
