Optimal survey strategies and predicted planet yields for the Korean microlensing telescope network

Henderson, Calen B.; Gaudi, B S; Han, C; Skowron, Jan; Penny, Matthew P.; Nataf, David; Gould, A

Description

The Korean Microlensing Telescope Network (KMTNet) will consist of three 1.6 m telescopes each with a 4 deg2field of view (FoV) and will be dedicated to monitoring the Galactic Bulge to detect exoplanets via gravitational microlensing. KMTNet's combination of aperture size, FoV, cadence, and longitudinal coverage will provide a unique opportunity to probe exoplanet demographics in an unbiased way. Here we present simulations that optimize the observing strategy for and predict the planetary...[Show more]
