The transiting planet CoRoT-1b is thought to belong to the pM-class of planets, in which the thermal emission dominates in the optical wavelengths. We present a detection of its secondary eclipse in the CoRoT white channel data, whose response function goes from ∼400 to ∼1000 nm. We used two different filtering approaches, and several methods to evaluate the significance of a detection of the secondary eclipse. We detect a secondary eclipse centered within 20 min at the expected times for a… Expand
We measure secondary eclipses of the hot giant exoplanets CoRoT-1 at 3.6 and 4.5 μm, and CoRoT-2 at 3.6 μm, both using Warm Spitzer. We find that the Warm Spitzer mission is working very well forExpand
H-band thermal emission from the 19-h period planet WASP-19b
We present the first ground-based detection of thermal emission from an exoplanet in the H-band. Using HAWK-I on the VLT, we observed an occultation of WASP-19b by its G8V-type host star. WASP-19b isExpand
τ Boötis b: Hunting for reflected starlight
Aims. We attempt to detect starlight reflected from the hot Jupiter orbiting the main-sequence star τ Boo, in order to determine the albedo of the planetary atmosphere, the orbital inclination of theExpand
The thermal emission of the young and massive planet CoRoT-2b at 4.5 and 8 μm
We report measurements of the thermal emission of the young and massive planet CoRoT-2b at 4.5 and 8 μm with the Spitzer Infrared Array Camera (IRAC). Our measured occultation depths are 0.510 ±Expand
Detection of KS -band Thermal Emission from WASP-3b
We report the detection of thermal emission from the hot Jupiter WASP-3b in the K{sub S} band, using a newly developed guiding scheme for the WIRC instrument at the Palomar Hale 200 inch telescope.Expand
The return of the mummy: Evidence for starlight reflected from the massive hot Jupiter τ Boo b?
Very recently, we were able to measure CO absorption features in the atmosphere of the non-transiting planet τ Boo b for the very first time. This allowed us to unravel a long-term mystery in planetExpand
Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission XIII. CoRoT-13b: a dense hot Jupiter in transit around a star with solar metallicity and super-solar lithium content
We announce the discovery of the transiting planet CoRoT-13b. Ground-based follow-up in CFHT and IAC80 confirmed CoRoT’s observations. The mass of the planet was measured with the HARPS spectrographExpand
Planetary transit candidates in the CoRoT initial run: resolving their nature
With the release of CoRoT lightcurves of the Initial Run IRa01, 50 transiting planetary candidates have been published in a companion paper. About twenty of them were identified as binary stars fromExpand
CoRoT: Harvest of the exoplanet program
One of the objectives of the CoRoT mission is the search for transiting extrasolar planets using high-precision photometry, and the accurate characterization of their fundamental parameters. TheExpand
Detection of Neptune-size planetary candidates with CoRoT data. Comparison with the planet occurrence rate derived from Kepler
Context. The CoRoT space mission has been searching for transiting planets since the end of December 2006. It has led to the detection of about twenty Jupiter-size planets and three planets withExpand


The secondary eclipse of the transiting exoplanet CoRoT-2b
We present a study of the light curve of the transiting exoplanet CoRoT-2b, aimed at detecting the secondary eclipse and measuring its depth. The data were obtained with the CoRoT satellite duringExpand
Detection of Thermal Emission from an Extrasolar Planet
