Spectrophotometry with a transmission grating for detecting faint occultations


High-precision spectrophotometry is highly desirable in detecting and characterizing close-in extrasolar planets to learn about their makeup and temperature. For such a goal, a modest-size telescope with a simple low-resolution spectroscopic instrument is potentially as good or better than a complex general purpose spec-trograph since calibration and… (More)
