We present broad-band photometry of five transits in the planetary system WASP-36, totalling 17 high-precision light curves. Four of the transits were simultaneously observed in four passbands (g', r', i', z'), using the telescope-defocusing technique, and achieving scatters of less than 1 mmag per observation. We used these data to improve the measured orbital and physical properties of the system, and obtain an optical transmission spectrum of the planet. We measured a decreasing radius from… 
Physical properties and transmission spectrum of the WASP-74 planetary system from multiband photometry
We present broad-band photometry of eleven planetary transits of the hot Jupiter WASP-74b, using three medium-class telescopes and employing the telescope-defocussing technique. Most of the transits
Transmission spectroscopy of the inflated exoplanet WASP-52b, and evidence for a bright region on the stellar surface
We have measured the transmission spectrum of the extremely inflated hot Jupiter WASP-52b using simultaneous photometric observations in Sloan Digital Sky Survey u΄, g΄ and a filter centred on the
Orbital alignment and star-spot properties in the WASP-52 planetary system
We report 13 high-precision light curves of eight transits of the exoplanet WASP-52 b, obtained by using four medium-class telescopes, through different filters, and adopting the defocussing
Spectral and atmospheric characterization of 51 Eridani b using VLT/SPHERE
Context. 51 Eridani b is an exoplanet around a young (20 Myr) nearby (29.4 pc) F0-type star, which was recently discovered by direct imaging. It is one of the closest direct imaging planets in
Observing transiting planets with JWST. Prime targets and their synthetic spectral observations
Context. The James Webb Space Telescope will enable astronomers to obtain exoplanet spectra of unprecedented precision. The MIRI instrument especially may shed light on the nature of the cloud
The GJ 504 system revisited
Context. The G-type star GJ504A is known to host a 3–35 MJup companion whose temperature, mass, and projected separation all contribute to making it a test case for planet formation theories and
Phase curves of WASP-33b and HD 149026b and a New Correlation Between Phase Curve Offset and Irradiation Temperature
We present new 3.6 and 4.5 μm Spitzer phase curves for the highly irradiated hot Jupiter WASP-33b and the unusually dense Saturn-mass planet HD 149026b. As part of this analysis, we develop a new
Systematic Phase Curve Study of Known Transiting Systems from Year One of the TESS Mission
We present a systematic phase curve analysis of known transiting systems observed by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) during year one of the primary mission. Using theoretical
An optical transmission spectrum of the transiting hot Jupiter in the metal-poor WASP-98 planetary system
The WASP-98 planetary system represents a rare case of a hot Jupiter hosted by a metalpoor main-sequence star. We present a follow-up study of this system based on multiband photometry and high-res
Polarized radiative transfer in planetary atmospheres and the polarization of exoplanets
We describe the incorporation of polarized radiative transfer into the atmospheric radiative transfer modelling code VSTAR (Versatile Software for Transfer of Atmospheric Radiation). Using a vector


Physical properties and transmission spectrum of the WASP-80 planetary system from multi-colour photometry
WASP-80 is one of only two systems known to contain a hot Jupiter which transits its M-dwarf host star. We present eight light curves of one transit event, obtained simultaneously using two
We present a ground-based optical transmission spectrum of the inflated sub-Jupiter-mass planet WASP-6b. The spectrum was measured in 20 spectral channels from 480 nm to 860 nm using a series of 91

High-precision photometry by telescope defocusing – VII. The ultrashort period planet WASP-103
We present 17 transit light curves of the ultrashort period planetary system WASP-103, a strong candidate for the detection of tidally-induced orbital decay. We use these to establish a
Physical properties of the WASP-67 planetary system from multi-colour photometry
Context. The extrasolar planet WASP-67 b is the first hot Jupiter definitively known to undergo only partial eclipses. The lack of the second and third contact points in this planetary system makes
WASP-19b is one of the most irradiated hot-Jupiters known. Its secondary eclipse is the deepest of all transiting planets and has been measured in multiple optical and infrared bands. We obtained a
