The physical bases of the detection and characterisation of extrasolar
planets in the reflected light and thermal emission regimes are reviewed. They
both have their advantages and disadvantages, including artefacts, in the
determination of planet physical parameters (mass, size, albedo, surface and
atmospheric conditions etc. A special attention is paid for Earth-like planets
and new perspectives for these different aspects are also presented.
