The Future of AO Regarding Jet Studies

Pioneering studies led in the past years have fully shown the potential of adaptive optics observations for jet studies. However, only a few objects have been studied so far in detail (only 3 for the variation of excitation conditions DG Tau, RW Aur, and HH 30, for example). A full exploitation of the current instrumentation for more systematic studies is required. In particular, it is essential to extend significantly the sample of sources to probe: a broader range in disk accretion rates (including Fu Ori type objects) and central stellar masses (going from HAeBe to brown dwarfs) and to investigate the influence
