Of the over 400 known exoplanets, there are about 70 planets that transit their central star, a situation that permits the derivation of their basic parameters and facilitates investigations of their atmospheres. Some short-period planets, including the first terrestrial exoplanet (CoRoT-7b), have been discovered using a space mission designed to find smaller and more distant planets than can be seen from the ground. Here we report transit observations of CoRoT-9b, which orbits with a period of… Expand

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission - X. CoRoT-10b: a giant planet in a 13.24 day eccentric orbit
Context. The space telescope CoRoT searches for transiting extrasolar planets by continuously monitoring the optical flux of thousands of stars in several fields of view. Aims. We report theExpand
SOPHIE velocimetry of Kepler transit candidates: XIX. The transiting temperate giant planet KOI-3680b
Whereas thousands of transiting giant exoplanets are known today, only a few are well characterized with long orbital periods. Here we present KOI-3680b, a new planet in this category. FirstExpand
We measure the mass of a modestly irradiated giant planet, KOI-94d. We wish to determine whether this planet, which is in a 22 day orbit and receives 2700 times as much incident flux as Jupiter, isExpand
The Heavy-element Masses of Extrasolar Giant Planets, Revealed
We investigate a population of transiting planets that receive relatively modest stellar insolation, indicating equilibrium temperatures <1000?K, and for which the heating mechanism that inflates hotExpand

I calculate the physical properties of 32 transiting extrasolar planet and brown-dwarf systems from existing photometric observations and measured spectroscopic parameters. The systems studiedExpand
We announce the discovery of a planetary system with seven transiting planets around a Kepler target, a current record for transiting systems. Planets b, c, e, and f are reported for the first timeExpand
Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission XIII. CoRoT-13b: a dense hot Jupiter in transit around a star with solar metallicity and super-solar lithium content
We announce the discovery of the transiting planet CoRoT-13b. Ground-based follow-up in CFHT and IAC80 confirmed CoRoT’s observations. The mass of the planet was measured with the HARPS spectrographExpand


Rapid heating of the atmosphere of an extrasolar planet
8-μm photometric observations of the planet HD 80606b during a 30-hour interval bracketing the periastron passage of its extremely eccentric 111.4-day orbit indicate the global heating rate is ∼4.5 h, in comparison with 3–5 days in Earth’s stratosphere, and a secondary eclipse for the planet is detected.

HD 17156b: A Transiting Planet with a 21.2 Day Period and an Eccentric Orbit
We report the detection of transits by the 3.1MJup companion to the V=8.17 G0V star HD 17156. The transit was observed by three independant observers on Sept. 9/10, 2007 (two in central Italy and oneExpand
The composition of transiting giant extrasolar planets
In principle, the combined measurements of the mass and radius of a giant exoplanet allow one to determine the relative fraction of hydrogen and helium and of heavy elements in the planet. However,Expand
Detection of a transit by the planetary companion of HD 80606

Enhanced lithium depletion in Sun-like stars with orbiting planets
Li abundances are reported for an unbiased sample of solar-analogue stars with and without detected planets to find that the planet-bearing stars have less than one per cent of the primordial Li abundance, while about 50% of the solar analogueswithout detected planets have on average ten times more Li.
