  • Discrepancies between isochrone fitting and gyrochronology for exoplanet host stars? 

    Brown, D.J.A. (2014-08-01) - Journal article
    Using a sample of 68 planet-hosting stars, I carry out a comparison of isochrone fitting and gyrochronology to investigate whether tidal interactions between the stars and their planets are leading to underestimated ages ...
  • WASP-104b and WASP-106b : two transiting hot Jupiters in 1.75-day and 9.3-day orbits 

    Smith, A.M.S.; Anderson, D.R.; Armstrong, D.J.; Barros, S.C.C.; Bonomo, A.S.; Bouchy, F.; Brown, D.J.A.; Collier Cameron, A.; Delrez, L.; Faedi, F.; Gillon, M.; Gómez Maqueo Chew, Y.; Hébrard, G.; Jehin, E.; Lendl, M.; Louden, T.M.; Maxted, P.F.L.; Montagnier, G.; Neveu-Vanmalle, M.; Osborn, H.P.; Pepe, F.; Pollacco, D.; Queloz, D.; Rostron, J.W.; Segransan, D.; Smalley, B.; Triaud, A.H.M.J.; Turner, O.D.; Udry, S.; Walker, S.R.; West, R.G.; Wheatley, P.J. (2014-10) - Journal article
    We have used the WASP survey to discover two exoplanetary systems, each consisting of a Jupiter-sized planet transiting an 11th-magnitude (V) main-sequence star. WASP-104b orbits its star in 1.75 d, whereas WASP-106b has ...
  • WASP-20b and WASP-28b : a hot Saturn and a hot Jupiter in near-aligned orbits around solar-type stars 

    Anderson, D.R.; Collier Cameron, A.; Hellier, C.; Lendl, M.; Lister, T.A.; Maxted, P.F.L.; Queloz, D.; Smalley, B.; Smith, A.M.S.; Triaud, A.H.M.J.; Brown, D.J.A.; Gillon, M.; Neveu-Vanmalle, M.; Pepe, F.; Pollacco, D.; Ségransan, D.; Udry, S.; West, R.G.; Wheatley, P.J. (2015-03) - Journal article
    We report the discovery of the planets WASP-20b and WASP-28b along with measurements of their sky-projected orbital obliquities. WASP-20b is an inflated, Saturn-mass planet (0.31M; 1.46R) in a 4.9-day, near-aligned (λ = ...
  • WASP-35b, WASP-48b, and HAT-P-30b/WASP-51b : two new planets and an independent discovery of a hat planet 

    Enoch, B.; Anderson, D.R.; Barros, S.C.C.; Brown, D.J.A.; Collier Cameron, A.; Faedi, F.; Gillon, M.; Hébrard, G.; Lister, T.A.; Queloz, D.; Santerne, A.; Smalley, B.; Street, R.A.; Triaud, A.H.M.J.; West, R.G.; Bouchy, F.; Bento, J.; Butters, O.; Fossati, L.; Haswell, C.~A.; Hellier, C.; Holmes, S.; Jehen, E.; Lendl, M.; Maxted, P.F.L.; McCormac, J.; Miller, G.R.M.; Moulds, V.; Moutou, C.; Norton, A.J.; Parley, N.; Pepe, F.; Pollacco, D.; Segransan, D.; Simpson, E.; Skillen, I.; Smith, A.M.S.; Udry, S.; Wheatley, P.J. (2011-08-16) - Journal article
    We report the detection of WASP-35b, a planet transiting a metal-poor ([Fe/H] = –0.15) star in the Southern hemisphere, WASP-48b, an inflated planet which may have spun-up its slightly evolved host star of 1.75 R ☉ in the ...
  • WASP-52b, WASP-58b, WASP-59b, and WASP-60b : four new transiting close-in giant planets 

    Hébrard, G.; Collier Cameron, A.; Brown, D.J.A.; Díaz, R.F.; Faedi, F.; Smalley, B.; Anderson, D.R.; Armstrong, D.; Barros, S.C.C.; Bento, J.; Bouchy, F.; Doyle, A.P.; Enoch, B.; Gómez Maqueo Chew, Y.; Hébrard, E.M.; Hellier, C.; Lendl, M.; Lister, T.A.; Maxted, P.F.L.; McCormac, J.; Moutou, C.; Pollacco, D.; Queloz, D.; Santerne, A.; Skillen, I.; Southworth, J.; Tregloan-Reed, J.; Triaud, A.H.M.J.; Udry, S.; Vanhuysse, M.; Watson, C.A.; West, R.G.; Wheatley, P.J. (2013-01) - Journal article
    We present the discovery of four new transiting hot Jupiters, detected mainly from SuperWASP-North and SOPHIE observations. These new planets, WASP-52b, WASP-58b, WASP-59b, and WASP-60b, have orbital periods ranging from ...
