This work presents a homogeneous determination of lithium abundances in a large sample of giant-planet-hosting stars (N = 117) and a control sample of disk stars without detected planets (N = 145). The lithium abundances were derived using a detailed profile fitting of the Li I doublet at 6708 A in LTE. The planet-hosting and comparison stars were chosen to have significant overlap in their respective physical properties, including effective temperatures, luminosities, masses, metallicities… Expand

Enhanced lithium depletion in Sun-like stars with orbiting planets
TLDR
Li abundances are reported for an unbiased sample of solar-analogue stars with and without detected planets to find that the planet-bearing stars have less than one per cent of the primordial Li abundance, while about 50% of the solar analogueswithout detected planets have on average ten times more Li.
