The First Extrasolar Planet Discovered with a New-Generation High-Throughput Doppler Instrument
We report the detection of the first extrasolar planet, ET-1 (HD 102195b), using the Exoplanet Tracker (ET), a new-generation Doppler instrument. The planet orbits HD 102195, a young star with solarExpand
HDO and SO2 thermal mapping on Venus - II. The SO2 spatial distribution above and within the clouds
Sulfur dioxide and water vapor, two key species of Venus photochemistry, are known to exhibit significant spatial and temporal variations above the cloud top. In particular, ground-based thermalExpand
FLAMINGOS-2: the facility near-infrared wide-field imager and multi-object spectrograph for Gemini
Stephen Eikenberry, Reba Bandyopadhyay, J. Greg Bennett, Aaron Bessoff, Matt Branch, Miguel Charcos, Richard Corley, Curtis Dewitt, John-David Eriksen, Richard Elston, Skip Frommeyer, AnthonyExpand
HDO and SO 2 thermal mapping on Venus
We present the analysis of a four-year observational campaign using the TEXES high-resolution imaging spectrometer at the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility to map sulfur dioxide and deuterated waterExpand
High-resolution SOFIA/EXES Spectroscopy of SO2 Gas in the Massive Young Stellar Object MonR2 IRS3: Implications for the Sulfur Budget.
The narrowness of the lines makes formation of SO2 from sulfur sputtered off grains in shocks less likely toward MonR2 IRS3, and the small line widths and high temperature locate the gas in a relatively quiescent region near the YSO, presumably in the hot core where ices have evaporated. Expand
New measurements of D/H on Mars using EXES aboard SOFIA
The global D/H ratio on Mars is an important measurement for understanding the past history of water on Mars; locally, through condensation and sublimation processes, it is a possible tracer of theExpand
SOFIA-EXES Mid-IR Observations of [Fe II] Emission from the Extended Atmosphere of Betelgeuse
We present a NASA-DLR SOFIA-Echelon Cross Echelle Spectrograph (EXES) and NASA Infrared Telescope Facility-Texas Echelon Cross Echelle Spectrograph (TEXES) mid-IR R ≃ 50,000 spectral study ofExpand
FLAMINGOS-2: the facility near-infrared wide-field imager and multi-object spectrograph for Gemini
We report on the design and status of the FLAMINGOS-2 instrument - a fully-cryogenic facility near-infrared imager and multi-object spectrograph for the Gemini 8-meter telescopes. FLAMINGOS-2 has aExpand
An Inexpensive Field-Widened Monolithic Michelson Interferometer for Precision Radial Velocity Measurements
ABSTRACT. We have constructed a thermally compensated field-widened monolithic Michelson interferometer that can be used with a medium-resolution spectrograph to measure precise Doppler radialExpand
First Planet Confirmation with a Dispersed Fixed-Delay Interferometer
The Exoplanet Tracker is a prototype of a new type of fiber-fed instrument for performing high-precision relative Doppler measurements to detect extrasolar planets. A combination of MichelsonExpand
