Radial contrast limits as a function of separation for the deepest ZIMPOL high-contrast dataset of α Cen B in the VBB filter. The plot shows the 5σ limits for the intensity and polarised intensity from the same observation as well as the 1σ photon noise limit for the polarised intensity. The meaning of the colours and symbols is the same as explained in Fig. 6.
