We report on three new transiting hot Jupiter planets, discovered from the WASP surveys, which we combine with radial velocities from OHP/ SOPHIE and Euler/CORALIE and photometry from Euler and TRAPPIST. The planets WASP-76b, WASP-82b, and WASP-90b are all inflated, with radii of 1.7-1.8 R-Jup. All three orbit hot stars, of type F5-F7, with orbits of 1.8-3.9 d, and all three stars have evolved, post-main-sequence radii (1.7-2.2 R-circle dot). Thus the three planets fit a known trend of hot…

Statistical Characterization of Hot Jupiter Atmospheres Using Spitzer’s Secondary Eclipses

We report 78 secondary eclipse depths for a sample of 36 transiting hot Jupiters observed at 3.6 and 4.5 μm using the Spitzer Space Telescope. Our eclipse results for 27 of these planets are new, and

Spitzer Phase-curve Observations and Circulation Models of the Inflated Ultrahot Jupiter WASP-76b

The large radii of many hot Jupiters can only be matched by models that have hot interior adiabats, and recent theoretical work has shown that the interior evolution of hot Jupiters has a significant

Hot Exoplanet Atmospheres Resolved with Transit Spectroscopy (HEARTS)

WASP-127b is one of the puffiest exoplanets found to date, with a mass of only 3.4 Neptune masses, but a radius larger than that of Jupiter. It is located at the border of the Neptune desert, which

An Atomic Spectral Survey of WASP-76b: Resolving Chemical Gradients and Asymmetries

Ultrahot Jupiters are gas giants that orbit so close to their host star that they are tidally locked, causing a permanent hot dayside and a cooler nightside. Signatures of their nonuniform

TOI-1842b: A Transiting Warm Saturn Undergoing Reinflation around an Evolving Subgiant

The imminent launch of space telescopes designed to probe the atmospheres of exoplanets has prompted new efforts to prioritize the thousands of transiting planet candidates for follow-up

A Search for FeH in Hot-Jupiter Atmospheres with High-dispersion Spectroscopy

Most of the molecules detected thus far in exoplanet atmospheres, such as water and CO, are present for a large range of pressures and temperatures. In contrast, metal hydrides exist in much more

The Hubble PanCET Program: Transit and Eclipse Spectroscopy of the Strongly Irradiated Giant Exoplanet WASP-76b

Ultra-hot Jupiters with equilibrium temperatures greater than 2000 K are uniquely interesting targets as they provide us crucial insights into how atmospheres behave under extreme conditions. This

K2-237 b and K2-238 b: discovery and characterization of two new transiting hot Jupiters from K2

We report the discovery of two hot Jupiters orbiting the stars K2-237 and K2-238. We used photometric data from Campaigns 11 and 12 of the Kepler K2mission and radial velocity data obtained using the

Five Key Exoplanet Questions Answered via the Analysis of 25 Hot-Jupiter Atmospheres in Eclipse

Population studies of exoplanets are key to unlocking their statistical properties. So far, the inferred properties have been mostly limited to planetary, orbital, and stellar parameters extracted



WASP-71b : a bloated hot Jupiter in a 2.9-day, prograde orbit around an evolved F8 star

We report the discovery by the WASP transit survey of a highly-irradiated, massive (2.242 ± 0.080 MJup) planet which transits a bright (V = 10.6), evolved F8 star every 2.9 days. The planet,
