A super-Earth transiting a nearby low-mass star
A decade ago, the detection of the first transiting extrasolar planet provided a direct constraint on its composition and opened the door to spectroscopic investigations of extrasolar planetaryExpand
THE FLAT TRANSMISSION SPECTRUM OF THE SUPER-EARTH GJ1214b FROM WIDE FIELD CAMERA 3 ON THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE
Capitalizing on the observational advantage oered by its tiny M dwarf host, we present HST/WFC3 grism measurements of the transmission spectrum of the super-Earth exoplanet GJ1214b. These are the rstExpand
ON THE ANGULAR MOMENTUM EVOLUTION OF FULLY CONVECTIVE STARS: ROTATION PERIODS FOR FIELD M-DWARFS FROM THE MEarth TRANSIT SURVEY
We present rotation period measurements for 41 field M-dwarfs, all of which have masses inferred (from their parallaxes and Two Micron All Sky Survey K-band magnitudes) to be between the hydrogenExpand
OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE FOR A METAL-RICH ATMOSPHERE ON THE SUPER-EARTH GJ1214b
We report observations of two consecutive transits of the warm super-Earth exoplanet GJ 1214b at 3.6 and 4.5 ?m with the Infrared Array Camera instrument on board the Spitzer Space Telescope. The twoExpand
Design Considerations for a Ground-Based Transit Search for Habitable Planets Orbiting M Dwarfs
By targeting nearby M dwarfs, a transit search using modest equipment is capable of discovering planets as small as 2 R⊕ in the habitable zones of their host stars. The MEarth Project, a futureExpand
The GJ1214 Super-Earth System: Stellar Variability, New Transits, and a Search for Additional Planets
The super-Earth GJ1214b transits a nearby M dwarf that exhibits a 1% intrinsic variability in the near-infrared. Here, we analyze new observations to refine the physical properties of both the starExpand
The Transit Light Curve Project. XIII. Sixteen Transits of the Super-Earth GJ 1214b
We present optical photometry of 16 transits of the super-Earth GJ 1214b, allowing us to refine the system parameters and search for additional planets via transit timing. Starspot-crossing eventsExpand
LSPM J1112+7626: DETECTION OF A 41 DAY M-DWARF ECLIPSING BINARY FROM THE MEARTH TRANSIT SURVEY
We report the detection of eclipses in LSPM J1112+7626, which we find to be a moderately bright (I{sub C} = 12.14 {+-} 0.05) very low mass binary system with an orbital period of 41.03236 {+-}Expand
GJ 3236: A New Bright, Very Low Mass Eclipsing Binary System Discovered by the MEARTH Observatory
We report the detection of eclipses in GJ 3236, a bright (I = 11.6), very low mass binary system with an orbital period of 0.77 days. Analysis of light and radial velocity curves of the systemExpand
Setting upper limits on the strength of periodic gravitational waves from PSR J1939+2134 using the first science data from the GEO 600 and LIGO detectors
Data collected by the GEO 600 and LIGO interferometric gravitational wave detectors during their first observational science run were searched for continuous gravitational waves from the pulsarExpand
