Jets and outflows are typical manifestations of the stellar mass loss process during the early stage of star formation. Optical and near-infrared (NIR) imaging of jets and outflows has become extremely popular recently, especially concerning large-scale surveys of Herbig-Haro (HH) objects, NIR imaging of jets and outflows driven by both low- and high-mass stars, and detailed imaging of jets and bow shocks at sub-arcsec resolution.

Optical and IR observations of jets and outflows have revealed (1) cavities evacuated by the outflow motion; (2) bow shocks inside and near the surface of the jets and outflows; (3) exciting sources; (4) circumstellar disks responsible for collimating the jets and outflows; (5) sometimes a cluster instead of a single source from which the jets and outflows initiate; (6) bursts of jets and outflows in some regions. Large-scale surveys of HH objects and outflows have been done in a number of nearby regions including Taurus, Orion, and Perseus. The prominent results of these studies range from the discovery of parsec-scale jets and outflows to their large-scale distribution. These studies also begin to reveal the relation between outflow activity and the large-scale distribution of young stellar objects.
