Context. Observations of young close-in exoplanets are providing initial indications for the characteristics of the population and clues to the early stages of their evolution. Transiting planets at young ages are also key benchmarks for our understanding of planetary evolution via the verification of atmospheric escape models. Aims. We performed radial velocity (RV) monitoring of the 40 Myr old star DS Tuc A with HARPS at the ESO-3.6 m to determine the planetary mass of its 8.14-day planet…

Constraining the entropy of formation from young transiting planet
Recently K2 and TESS have discovered transiting planets with radii between $\sim$ 5-10 R$_\oplus$ around stars with ages $<100$ Myr. These young planets are likely to be the progenitors of the
New constraints on the planetary system around the young active star AU Mic
AU Microscopii (AU Mic) is a young, active star whose transiting planet was recently detected. Here, we report our analysis of its TESS light curve, where we modeled the BY Draconis type

A planet within the debris disk around the pre-main sequence star AU Mic
The authors' observations of a planet co-existing with a debris disk offer the opportunity to test the predictions of current models of planet formation and evolution, and a transiting planet with a period of about 8.5 days and a radius 0.4 times that of Jupiter is reported within the debris disk around the star AU Microscopii.
A search for young exoplanets in Sectors 1–5 of the TESS full-frame images
Young (<1Gyr) exoplanets represent a critically important area of exoplanet research, as they offer the opportunity to learn about the formation and early dynamic history of exoplanetary systems.
Atmospheric Rossiter–McLaughlin effect and transmission spectroscopy of WASP-121b with ESPRESSO
Context. Ultra-hot Jupiters are excellent laboratories for the study of exoplanetary atmospheres. WASP-121b is one of the most studied; many recent analyses of its atmosphere report interesting
Cluster Difference Imaging Photometric Survey. II. TOI 837: A Young Validated Planet in IC 2602
We report the discovery of TOI 837b and its validation as a transiting planet. We characterize the system using data from the NASA TESS mission, the ESA Gaia mission, ground-based photometry from El
Context. ESPRESSO is the new high-resolution spectrograph of ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT). It was designed for ultra-high radial-velocity (RV) precision and extreme spectral fidelity with the aim
ESPRESSO high-resolution transmission spectroscopy of WASP-76 b
Aims. We report on ESPRESSO high-resolution transmission spectroscopic observations of two primary transits of the highly-irradiated, ultra-hot Jupiter-size planet WASP-76b. We investigate the
Exo-MerCat: A merged exoplanet catalog with Virtual Observatory connection
A unique catalog that merges information from the four main databases is retrieved, standardizing the output and handling notation differences issues, which can correct as many issues that prevent a direct correspondence between multiple items in the four databases as possible, with the available data.
