The CARMENES search for exoplanets around M dwarfs

We report the discovery of a Neptune-like planet (LP 714-47 b, P = 4.05204 d, mb = 30.8 ± 1.5M⊕, Rb = 4.7 ± 0.3 R⊕) located in the “hot Neptune desert”. Confirmation of the TESS Object of Interest

The backbone-residual model. Accurately characterising the instrumental profile of a fibre-fed echelle spectrograph

Context: Instrumental profile (IP) is the basic property of a spectrograph. Accurate IP characterisation is the prerequisite of accurate wavelength solution. It also facilitates new spectral

TOI-1231 b: A Temperate, Neptune-sized Planet Transiting the Nearby M3 Dwarf NLTT 24399

We report the discovery of a transiting, temperate, Neptune-sized exoplanet orbiting the nearby (d = 27.5 pc), M3V star TOI-1231 (NLTT 24399, L 248-27, 2MASS J10265947-5228099). The planet was

The properties of dwarf spheroidal galaxies in the Cen A group

Dwarf spheroidal galaxies (dSphs) have been extensively investigated in the Local Group, but their low luminosity and surface brightness make similar work in more distant galaxy groups challenging.
