The HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets - VI. A Neptune-mass planet around the nearby M dwarf Gl 581
We report the discovery of a Neptune-mass planet around Gl 581 (M3V, M = 0.31 ), based on precise Doppler measurements with the HARPS spectrograph at La Silla Observatory. The radial velocitiesExpand

The HARPS survey for southern extra-solar planets. II. A 14 Earth-masses exoplanet around μ Arae
In this letter we present the discovery of a very light planetary companion to the star mu Ara (HD160691). The planet orbits its host once every 9.5days, and induces a sinusoidal radial velocityExpand

The HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets - XIX. Characterization and dynamics of the GJ 876 planetary system
Precise radial-velocity measurements for data acquired with the HARPS spectrograph infer that three planets orbit the M4 dwarf star GJ876. In particular, we confirm the existence of planet d, whichExpand

Martian dayglow as seen by the SPICAM UV spectrograph on Mars Express
[1] In this paper we describe measurements of the Martian dayglow obtained by SPICAM UV spectrograph on board Mars Express between October 2004 and March 2005. Typical spectra (of more than 24,000Expand

The HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets. X. A m sin i = 11 M_â planet around the nearby spotted M dwarf GJ 674
Context. How planet properties depend on stellar mass is a key diagnostic of planetary formation mechanisms. Aims. This motivates planet searches around stars that are significantly more massive orExpand

The HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets. VIII. μ Arae , a system with four planets
Context. The µ Arae planetary system is fairly complex, because it contains two already known planets, µ Arae b with P = 640 days and µ Arae c with P = 9.64 days , and a third companion on a wide,Expand

The HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets - XXVIII. Up to seven planets orbiting HD 10180: probing the architecture of low-mass planetary systems
Low-mass extrasolar planets are presently being discovered at an increased pace by radial velocity and transit surveys, which opens a new window on planetary systems. Aims. We are conducting aExpand
