Imaging Extrasolar Giant Planets
High-contrast adaptive optics imaging is a powerful technique to probe the architectures of planetary systems from the outside-in and survey the atmospheres of self-luminous giant planets. DirectExpand

RETIRED A STARS AND THEIR COMPANIONS. III. COMPARING THE MASS-PERIOD DISTRIBUTIONS OF PLANETS AROUND A-TYPE STARS AND SUN-LIKE STARS
We present an analysis of ~5 years of Lick Observatory radial velocity measurements targeting a uniform sample of 31 intermediate-mass (IM) subgiants (1.5 ≾ M_*/M_☉ ≾ 2.0) with the goal of measuringExpand

Near-infrared Spectroscopy of the Extrasolar Planet HR 8799 b
We present 2.12-2.23 ?m high contrast integral field spectroscopy of the extrasolar planet HR?8799 b. Our observations were obtained with OSIRIS on the Keck II telescope and sample the 2.2 ?m CH4Expand

ZODIACAL EXOPLANETS IN TIME (ZEIT). I. A NEPTUNE-SIZED PLANET ORBITING AN M4.5 DWARF IN THE HYADES STAR CLUSTER
Studying the properties of young planetary systems can shed light on how the dynamics and structure of planets evolve during their most formative years. Recent K2 observations of nearby youngExpand

Stellar and planetary properties of K2 campaign 1 candidates and validation of 17 planets, including a planet receiving Earth-like insolation
The extended Kepler mission, K2, is now providing photometry of new fields every three months in a search for transiting planets. In a recent study, Foreman-Mackey and collaborators presented a listExpand

A HOT JUPITER ORBITING THE 1.7 M⊙ SUBGIANT HD 102956
We report the detection of a giant planet in a 6.4950 day orbit around the 1.68 M ⊙ subgiant HD 102956. The planet has a semimajor axis a = 0.081 AU and a minimum mass M_P sin i =0.96 M_(Jup). HDExpand

Studying the physical diversity of late-M dwarfs with dynamical masses
We present a systematic study of the physical properties of late-M dwarfs based on high-quality dynamical mass measurements and near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. We use astrometry from Keck naturalExpand

Retired A Stars and Their Companions. IV. Seven Jovian Exoplanets from Keck Observatory
We report precise Doppler measurements of seven subgiants from Keck Observatory. All seven stars show variability in their radial velocities consistent with planet-mass companions in KeplerianExpand

Spectroscopic Confirmation of Young Planetary-mass Companions on Wide Orbits
We present moderate-resolution (R ~ 4000-5000) near-infrared integral field spectroscopy of the young (1-5 Myr) 6-14 M_(Jup) companions ROXs 42B b and FW Tau b obtained with Keck/OSIRIS andExpand
