Abstract: We explore KLIP forward modeling spectral extraction on Gemini Planet Imager coronagraphic data of HR 8799,usingPyKLIP,and show algorithm stability with varying KLIP parameters. We report new and re-reducedspectrophotometry of HR 8799 c, d, and e in theHandKbands. We discuss a strategy for choosing optimal KLIPPSF subtraction parameters by injecting simulated sources and recovering them over a range of parameters. TheK1/K2spectra for HR 8799 c and d are similar to previously published results from the same data set. We alsopresent aK-band spectrum of HR 8799 e for thefirst time and show that ourH-band spectra agree well withpreviously published spectra from the VLT/SPHERE instrument. We show that HR 8799 c and d show significantdifferences in theirHandKspectra, but do notfind any conclusive differences between d and e, nor between c ande, likely due to large error bars in the recovered spectrum of e. Compared to M-, L-, and T-typefield brown dwarfs,all three planets are most consistent with mid- and late-L spectral types. All objects are consistent with low gravity,but a lack of standard spectra for low gravity limit the ability tofit the best spectral type. We discuss how dedicatedmodeling efforts can betterfit HR 8799 planets’near-IRflux, as well as how differences between the properties ofthese planets can be further explored.
