We report the discovery of a super-Earth orbiting the star GJ 536 based on the analysis of the radial-velocity time series from the HARPS and HARPS-N spectrographs. GJ 536 b is a planet with a minimum mass M sin $i$ of 5.36 +- 0.69 Me with an orbital period of 8.7076 +- 0.0025 days at a distance of 0.066610(13) AU, and an orbit that is consistent with circular. The host star is the moderately quiet M1 V star GJ 536, located at 10 pc from the Sun. We find the presence of a second signal at 43… 

The RoPES project with HARPS and HARPS-N. I. A system of super-Earths orbiting the moderately active K-dwarf HD 176986

We report the discovery of a system of two super-Earths orbiting the moderately active K-dwarf HD 176986. This work is part of the RoPES RV program of G- and K-type stars, which combines radial

Prospects for detecting the astrometric signature of Barnard’s Star b

A low-amplitude periodic signal in the radial velocity (RV) time series of Barnard’s Star was recently attributed to a planetary companion with a minimum mass of ~3.2 M⊕ at an orbital period of ~233

A Jovian planet in an eccentric 11.5 day orbit around HD 1397 discovered by TESS

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite TESS has begun a new age of exoplanet discoveries around bright host stars. We present the discovery of HD 1397b (TOI-120.01), a giant planet in an 11.54-day

We use radial velocity (RV) observations to search for long-period gas giant companions in systems hosting inner super-Earth (1–4 R⊕, 1–10 M⊕) planets to constrain formation and migration scenarios

HADES RV Programme with HARPS-N at TNG

Context. The high number of super-Earth and Earth-like planets in the habitable zone detected around M-dwarf stars in recent years has revealed these stellar objects to be the key to planetary radial

Chemo-kinematic Ages of Eccentric-planet-hosting M Dwarf Stars

The M dwarf stars are exciting targets for exoplanet investigations; however, their fundamental stellar properties are difficult to measure. Perhaps the most challenging property is stellar age. Once

SPIRou input catalogue: activity, rotation and magnetic field of cool dwarfs

Based on optical high‐resolution spectra obtained with CFHT/ESPaDOnS, we present new measurements of activity and magnetic field proxies of 442 low‐mass K5‐M7 dwarfs. The objects were analysed as

Detection Limits and Planet Occurrence Rate in the CARMENES Sample

. – The CARMENES survey is monitoring more than 300 M-dwarf stars looking for exoplanets. Besides planet discoveries, the data it produces can also be used to estimate the statistics of planets

Characterization of the radial velocity signal induced by rotation in late-type dwarfs

We investigate the activity induced signals related to rotation in late type stars (FGKM). We analyse the Ca II H&K, the H alpha and the radial velocity time-series of 55 stars using the spectra from
