We present the PLANET photometric data set for OGLE-1998-BUL-14, a high-magnification (A(max) similar to 16) event alerted by the OGLE collaboration toward the Galactic bulge in 1998. The PLANET data set consists a total of 461 I-band and 139 V-band points, the majority of which was taken over a 3 month period. The median sampling interval during this period is about 1 hr,and the I sigma scatter over the peak of the event is 1.5%. The excellent data quality and high maximum magnification of… 
PLANET Observations of Microlensing Event OGLE-1999-BUL-23: Limb-darkening Measurement of the Source Star
We present PLANET observations of OGLE-1999-BUL-23, a binary-lens microlensing event toward the Galactic bulge. PLANET observations in the I and V bands cover the event from just before the first
Constraints on Planetary Companions in the Magnification A=256 Microlensing Event OGLE-2003-BLG-423
We develop a new method of modeling microlensing events based on a Monte Carlo simulation that incorporates both a Galactic model and the constraints imposed by the observed characteristics of the
Microlensing limits on numbers and orbits of extrasolar planets from the 1998–2000 OGLE events
We analyse three years (1998-2000) of Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE) observations of microlensing events to place limits on the abundance of planets with a planet-to-star mass ratio
Microlensing constraints on the frequency of Jupiter-mass companions: Analysis of 5 years of PLANET photometry
We analyze 5 years of PLANET photometry of microlensing events toward the Galactic bulge to search for the short-duration deviations from single-lens light curves that are indicative of the presence
Planetary Detection Efficiency of the Magnification 3000 Microlensing Event OGLE-2004-BLG-343
OGLE-2004-BLG-343 was a microlensing event with peak magnification Amax = 3000 ± 1100, by far the highest magnification event ever analyzed and hence potentially extremely sensitive to planets
Full characterization of binary-lens event OGLE-2002-BLG-069 from PLANET observations
We analyze the photometric data obtained by PLANET and OGLE on the caustic-crossing binary-lens microlensing event OGLE-2002-BLG-069. Thanks to the excellent photometric and spectroscopic coverage of
Limits on additional planetary companions to OGLE 2005-BLG-390L
Aims. We investigate constraints on additional planets orbiting the distant M-dwarf star OGLE 2005-BLG-390L, around which photometric microlensing data has revealed the existence of the
Probability of Detecting a Planetary Companion during a Microlensing Event
The averaged probability of detecting a planetary companion of a lensing star during a microlensing event toward the Galactic center when the planet to star mass ratio q = 0.001 is shown to have a
We search for signatures of planets in 43 intensively monitored microlensing events that were observed between 1995 and 1999. Planets would be expected to cause a short-duration (∼1 day) deviation on
We analyze OGLE-2003-BLG-262, a relatively short (tE ¼ 12:5 � 0:1 day) microlensing event generated by a point-mass lens transiting the face of a K giant source in the Galactic bulge. We use the
