Context. 55 Cancri hosts five known exoplanets, most notably the hot super-Earth 55Cnce, which is one of the hottest known transiting super-Earths. Aims. Due to the short orbital separation and host star brightness, 55Cnce provides one of the best opportunities for studying star- planet interactions (SPIs). We aim to understand possible SPIs in this system, which requires a detailed understanding of the stellar magnetic field and wind impinging on the planet. Methods. Using spectropolarimetric…
