Status of the Calan-Hertfordshire Extrasolar Planet Search

In these proceedings we give a status update of the Calan-Hertfordshire Extrasolar Planet Search, an international collaboration led from Chile that aims to discover more planets around super

The SOPHIE search for northern extrasolar planets - IX. Populating the brown dwarf desert

Radial velocity planet search surveys of nearby solar-type stars have shown a strong scarcity of brown dwarf companions within similar to 5 AU. There is presently no comprehensive explanation for

The observed distribution of spectroscopic binaries from the Anglo-Australian Planet Search

We report the detection of sixteen binary systems from the Anglo-Australian Planet Search. Solutions to the radial velocity data indicate that the stars have companions orbiting with a wide range of

New planetary systems from the Calan-Hertfordshire Extrasolar planet search

We report the discovery of eight new giant planets, and updated orbits for four known planets, orbiting dwarf and subgiant stars using the CORALIE, HARPS, and MIKE instruments as part of the

An ablating 2.6 M⊕ planet in an eccentric binary from the Dispersed Matter Planet Project

Earth mass exoplanets are difficult to detect. The Dispersed Matter Planet Project (DMPP) identifies stars which are likely to host the most detectable low mass exoplanets. The star DMPP-3 (HD 42936)

A HOT URANUS ORBITING THE SUPER METAL-RICH STAR HD 77338 AND THE METALLICITY–MASS CONNECTION

We announce the discovery of a low-mass planet orbiting the super metal-rich K0V star HD 77338 as part of our ongoing Calan-Hertfordshire Extrasolar Planet Search. The best-fit planet solution has an

No evidence of the planet orbiting the extremely metal-poor extragalactic star HIP 13044

Context. The recent discovery of three giant planets orbiting the extremely metal-poor stars HIP 11952 and HIP 13044 have challenged theoretical predictions of the core-accretion model. According to

Exoplanet Surveys at Universidad de Chile

Abstract We present and highlight the first results of the three main exoplanet surveys we are currently conducting at Universidad de Chile: CHEPS, Red Giant Exoplanets (radial velocity), and TraMoS

A Jupiter-mass companion to a solar-type star

The presence of a Jupiter-mass companion to the star 51 Pegasi is inferred from observations of periodic variations in the star's radial velocity. The companion lies only about eight million

HD 91669B: A NEW BROWN DWARF CANDIDATE FROM THE McDONALD OBSERVATORY PLANET SEARCH

We report the detection of a brown dwarf candidate orbiting the metal-rich K dwarf HD 91669, based on radial-velocity data from the McDonald Observatory Planet Search. HD 91669b is a substellar

An activity catalogue of southern stars

We have acquired high-resolution echelle spectra of 225 F6-M5 type stars in the southern hemisphere. The stars are targets or candidates to be targets for the AngloAustralian Planet Search. CaII HK

Radial Velocity Jitter in Stars from the California and Carnegie Planet Search at Keck Observatory

I present an empirical model for predicting a star’s radial velocity jitter from its B - V color, activity level, and absolute magnitude. This model is based on observations of ∼450 well‐observed

The stellar metallicity—giant planet connection

The parent stars of the recently announced planetary system candidates are far from typical in terms of their chemical compositions. In this study we report on spectroscopic abundance analyses of v

LOW-MASS COMPANIONS FOR FIVE SOLAR-TYPE STARS FROM THE MAGELLAN PLANET SEARCH PROGRAM

We report low-mass companions orbiting five solar-type stars that have emerged from the Magellan precision Doppler velocity survey, with minimum (Msin i) masses ranging from 1.2 to 25 MJUP. These

The Mass of the Convective Zone in FGK Main-Sequence Stars and the Effect of Accreted Planetary Material on Apparent Metallicity Determinations

The mass of the outer convective zone in FGK main-sequence stars decreases dramatically with stellar mass. Therefore, any contamination of a star's atmosphere by accreted planetary material should

Where is the Second Planet in the HD 160691 Planetary System?

A set of radial velocity measurements of HD 160691 has been recently published by H. Jones and coauthors. It reveals a linear trend that indicates the presence of a second planet in this system. The

Structure and evolution of super-Earth to super-Jupiter exoplanets - I. Heavy element enrichment in the interior

Aims. We examine the uncertainties in current planetary models and quantify their impact on the planet cooling histories and massradius relationships. Methods. These uncertainties include (i) the

The Planet-Metallicity Correlation

We have recently carried out spectral synthesis modeling to determine Teff, log g, v sin i, and [Fe/H] for 1040 FGK-type stars on the Keck, Lick, and Anglo-Australian Telescope planet search
