Recent imaging observations of transitional discs have revealed discrepancies between the structure observed at different wavelengths. In some targets, the gap measured using sub-mm observations disappears when observed using near infrared polarimetry, suggesting that the empty region is actually filled with small particles of dust (Dong et al., 2012). Assuming the gapped structure observed in transitional discs is caused by the presence of a planet, we try to explain such discrepancies simulating observations of physical models of disc/planet systems with VLT/SPHERE-ZIMPOL, Subaru/HiCIAO, VLT/VISIR and ALMA.
