A Photometric Diagnostic To Aid In The Identification Of Transiting Extrasolar Planets

Tingley, Brandon; Sackett, Penny

Description

One of the obstacles in the search for exoplanets via transits is the large number of candidates that must be followed up, few of which ultimately prove to be exoplanets. Any method that could make this process more efficient by somehow identifying the best candidates and eliminating the worst would therefore be very useful. Seager & Mallén-Ornelas demonstrated that it was possible to discern between blends and exoplanets using only the photometric characteristics of the transits. However,...[Show more]
