SPECTROSCOPIC PROPERTIES OF COOL STARS (SPOCS). I. 1040 F, G, AND K DWARFS FROM KECK, LICK, AND AAT PLANET SEARCH PROGRAMS
We present a uniform catalog of stellar properties for 1040 nearby F, G, and K stars that have been observed by the Keck, Lick, and AAT planet search programs. Fitting observed echelle spectra with
The Planet-Metallicity Correlation
We have recently carried out spectral synthesis modeling to determine Teff, log g, v sin i, and [Fe/H] for 1040 FGK-type stars on the Keck, Lick, and Anglo-Australian Telescope planet search
The Pan-STARRS1 Surveys
Pan-STARRS1 has carried out a set of distinct synoptic imaging sky surveys including the $3\pi$ Steradian Survey and the Medium Deep Survey in 5 bands ($grizy_{P1}$). The mean 5$\sigma$ point source
Spectroscopy Made Easy: A New Tool for Fitting Observations with Synthetic Spectra
We describe a new software package that may be used to determine stellar and atomic parameters by matching observed spectra with synthetic spectra generated from parameterized atmospheres. A
The Exoplanet Orbit Database
We present a database of well-determined orbital parameters of exoplanets, and their host stars’ properties. This database comprises spectroscopic orbital elements measured for 427 planets orbiting
The N2K Consortium. II. A Transiting Hot Saturn around HD 149026 with a Large Dense Core
Doppler measurements from Subaru and Keck have revealed radial velocity variations in the V = 8.15, G0 IV star HD 149026 consistent with a Saturn-mass planet in a 2.8766 day orbit. Photometric
Discovery of two young brown dwarfs in an eclipsing binary system
TLDR
This work reports the discovery of a brown-dwarf eclipsing binary system, in the Orion Nebula star-forming region, from which direct measurements of mass and radius establish both objects as brown dwarfs, and finds that the less-massive brown dwarf is the hotter of the pair.
The Occurrence and Mass Distribution of Close-in Super-Earths, Neptunes, and Jupiters
TLDR
The occurrence rate of close-in planets (with orbital periods less than 50 days), based on precise Doppler measurements of 166 Sun-like stars, is reported, indicating that theoretical models of planet formation predict a deficit of planets in the domain from 5 to 30 Earth masses and with orbital periods under 50 days are in fact well populated.
The Pan-STARRS1 Database and Data Products
This paper describes the organization of the database and the catalog data products from the Pan-STARRS1 $3\pi$ Steradian Survey. The catalog data products are available in the form of an SQL-based
