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 superExpand

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 forExpand
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 ofExpand
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 theExpand
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)Expand
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 toExpand
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 anExpand
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 TraMoSExpand


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 millionExpand
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 HKExpand
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 substellarExpand
The HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets. I. HD 330075 b: A new "hot Jupiter"
We report on the first extra-solar planet discovered with the brand new HARPS instrument. The planet is a typical "hot Jupiter" with m2 sini = 0.62 MJup and an orbital period of 3.39 days, but fromExpand
The HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets. XVII. Super-Earth and Neptune-mass planets in m
We report on the detection of two new multiple planet systems orbiting solar-like stars HD 47 186 and HD 181 433. The first system contains a hot Neptune of 22.78 M⊕ with a 4.08-day period and aExpand
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 M JUP. TheseExpand
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 shouldExpand
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 searchExpand
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) theExpand
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. TheExpand
