  1. 1. Spectroscopic model characterisation of hot exoplanet atmospheres

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för astronomi och teoretisk fysik - Genomgår omorganisation

    Författare :Elin Sandvik; [2022]
    Nyckelord :Transit method; Transmission spectroscopy; Exoplanets; Hot Jupiter; Modelling; Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : Hot Jupiters are gas giants under intense stellar radiation with short orbital periods of only a few days. Due to their large radii, hot temperatures, and large scale heights, hot Jupiters can be observationally characterised in detail through spectroscopy over an entire orbital phase. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Have Radial Velocity Surveys Missed Any Planets?

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Astronomi - Genomgår omorganisation

    Författare :Shah Raj; [2021]
    Nyckelord :radial velocity survey; transit method; exoplanet; habitable zone; habitable zone boundaries; HZ; early Mars; recent Venus; stability; instability; chaos; REBOUND; MEGNO; MEGNO maps; Hill sphere; stable systems; unstable systems; Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : The project was aimed at numerically assessing exoplanetary systems to distinguish their capabilities of hosting additional planets. The shortcomings of the radial velocity method sometimes causes hindrance in the detection of terrestrial planets. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Detecting Earth-like exoplanets using high-dispersion nulling interferometry

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Tillämpad fysik

    Författare :Germain Garreau; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Applied Physics; Instrumental Optics; Exoplanets Detection; Interferometry; Spectroscopy; Tillämpad fysik; Instrumentoptik; Exoplaneter upptäckt; Interferometri; Spektroskopi;

    Sammanfattning : The detection of Earth-like exoplanets and the characterization of their atmospheres is a challenge one needs to solve to assess their habitability and the presence of life in the universe. If this challenge is still unresolved today, even in the era of giant telescopes, it is mainly because of the very high contrast between these exoplanets and their host star and also their proximity.

  4. 4. High resolution imaging observations of exoplanet host stars

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Astronomi - Genomgår omorganisation

    Författare :Kaltrina Kajtazi; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Speckle imaging; Speckle interferometry; High resolution imaging; Short integration time; Binaries; Exoplant hosts; Stellar properties; WIYN; Gemini; Orbital period; Physical separation; Angular separation; magnitude difference; Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : This is a thesis project, analysing data from high-resolution imaging observations, specifically speckle imaging, as a follow up study of exoplanet host stars observed with K2, the second operational phase of the space telescope Kepler. The project was accomplished at NASA Ames research center under the guidance of Rachel A. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Detailed analysis of the chemical composition of stars harboring Earth-like planets

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Astronomi - Genomgår omorganisation

    Författare :Lorena Acuña Aguirre; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : Context. The planet-metallicity correlation for gaseous giants is widely accepted through spectroscopic studies. However, whether a similar correlation exists for terrestrial planets is a debated subject. LÄS MER
