  • CONVENTIONAL optical techniques for detecting companions to stars have been unable to confirm the existence of other planetary systems. This is because of the small angular separation (less than an arcsecond) and relative luminosity (˜10–10 of any planet with respect to its parent star. As the velocity of the star due to the motion of a planet is likely to be only about one metre per second, detection through the Doppler shift of spectral lines in the stellar atmosphere is also impractical… CONTINUE READING
