ELODIE metallicity-biased search for transiting Hot Jupiters. II. A very hot Jupiter transiting the bright K star HD 189733
Among the 160 known exoplanets, mainly detected in large radial-velocity surveys, only 8 have a characterization of their actual mass and radius thanks to the two complementary methods of detection:Expand

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission VIII. CoRoT-7b: the first Super-Earth with measured radius
Aims. We report the discovery of very shallow (ΔF/F ≈ 3.4× 10 −4 ), periodic dips in the light curve of an active V = 11.7 G9V star observed by the CoRoT satellite, which we interpret as caused by aExpand

WASP-12b: The hottest transiting extrasolar planet yet discovered
TLDR
We report on the discovery of WASP-12b, a new transiting extrasolar planet with the largest radius of any transiting planet yet detected. Expand

Masses, Radii, and Orbits of Small Kepler Planets: The Transition From Gaseous to Rocky Planets
We report on the masses, sizes, and orbits of the planets orbiting 22 Kepler stars. There are 49 planet candidates around these stars, including 42 detected through transits and 7 revealed by preciseExpand

Detection of atmospheric haze on an extrasolar planet: the 0.55–1.05 μm transmission spectrum of HD 189733b with the Hubble Space Telescope
The nearby transiting planet HD 189733b was observed during three transits with the Advanced Camera for Surveys of the Hubble Space Telescope in spectroscopic mode. The resulting time-series of 675Expand

The CoRoT-7 planetary system: two orbiting super-Earths
We report on an intensive observational campaign carried out with HARPS at the 3.6 m telescope at La Silla on the star CoRoT-7. Additional simultaneous photometric measurements carried out with theExpand

Magnetic cycles of the planet-hosting star τ Bootis
We have obtained new spectropolarimetric observations of the planet-hosting star τ Bootis, using the ESPaDOnS and NARVAL spectropolarimeters at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) and TelescopeExpand

The Rossiter-McLaughlin effect of CoRoT-3b and HD 189733b
We present radial-velocity sequences acquired during three transits of the exoplanet HD 189733b and one transit of CoRoT-3b. We applied a combined Markov-chain Monte-Carlo analysis of spectroscopicExpand

WASP-1b and WASP-2b: Two new transiting exoplanets detected with SuperWASP and SOPHIE
TLDR
We have detected low-amplitude radial-velocity variations in two stars, USNO-B1.0 1219‐ 0005465 (GSC 02265‐00107 = WASP‐1) and WASP-2.0 0964‐0543604, which are likely host stars of transiting exoplanets. Expand

The Aromatic Infrared Bands as seen by ISO-SWS: Probing the PAH model
We discuss the Aromatic Infrared Band (AIB) proles observed by ISO-SWS towards a number of bright interstellar regions where dense molecular gas is illuminated by stellar radiation. Our sample spansExpand
