We present ground-based measurements of the transmission and emission spectra of the hot-Jupiter WASP-19b in nine spectroscopic channels from 1.25 to 2.35µm. The measurements are based on the combined analysis of time-series spectroscopy obtained during two complete transits and two complete secondary eclipses of the planet. The observations were performed with the MMIRS instrument on the MagellanII telescope using the technique of multi-object spectroscopy with wide slits. We compare the… 
Examining the broadband emission spectrum of WASP-19b: A new z-band eclipse detection
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
Thermal emission of WASP-48b in the Ks-band
We report a detection of thermal emission from the hot Jupiter WASP-48b in the Ks-band. We used the Wide-field Infra-red Camera on the 3.6-m Canada-France Hawaii Telescope to observe an occultation
A Ground-based Optical Transmission Spectrum of WASP-6b
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
Physical properties, transmission and emission spectra of the WASP-19 planetary system from multi-colour photometry
We present new ground-based, multi-colour, broad-band photometric measurements of the physical parameters, transmission and emission spectra of the transiting extrasolar planet WASP-19b. The

We present the results of a ground-based search for the secondary eclipse of the 3.3 M Jup transiting planet CoRoT-2b. We performed near-infrared photometry using the LIRIS instrument on the 4.2 m
Ground-based secondary eclipse detection of the very-hot Jupiter OGLE-TR-56b
We report on the detection of the secondary eclipse of the very-hot Jupiter OGLE-TR-56b from combined z' -band time series photometry obtained with the VLT and Magellan telescopes. We measure a flux
H-band thermal emission from the 19-h period planet WASP-19b
We present the first ground-based detection of thermal emission from an exoplanet in the H-band. Using HAWK-I on the VLT, we observed an occultation of WASP-19b by its G8V-type host star. WASP-19b is
