Atmospheric escape is considered to be one of the main channels for evolution in sub-Jovian planets, particularly in their early lives. While there are several hypotheses proposed to explain escape in exoplanets, testing them with atmospheric observations remains a challenge. In this context, high-resolution transmission spectroscopy of transiting exoplanets for the metastable helium triplet (He 23S) at 1083 nm has emerged as a reliable technique for observing and measuring escape. To aid in… 

The Upper Edge of the Neptune Desert Is Stable Against Photoevaporation

Transit surveys indicate that there is a deficit of Neptune-sized planets on close-in orbits. If this “Neptune desert” is entirely cleared out by atmospheric mass loss, then planets at its upper edge

Detection of Atmospheric Escape from Four Young Mini-Neptunes

We use Keck/NIRSPEC to survey a sample of of young (<1 Gyr), short-period mini-Neptunes orbiting nearby K dwarfs to measure their mass loss via the metastable helium line. We detect helium absorption

Keck/NIRSPEC Studies of He i in the Atmospheres of Two Inflated Hot Gas Giants Orbiting K Dwarfs: WASP-52b and WASP-177b

We present the detection of neutral helium at 10833 Å in the atmosphere of WASP-52b and tentative evidence of helium in the atmosphere of the grazing WASP-177b, using high-resolution observations
