  • Detection of atmospheric haze on an extrasolar planet: The 0.55-1.05 μm transmission spectrum of HD 189733b with the Hubble Space Telescope 

    Pont, F.; Knutson, H.; Gilliland, R.L.; Moutou, C.; Charbonneau, D. (Oxford University Press / Royal Astronomical Society, 2008)
    The nearby transiting planet HD 189733b was observed during three transits with the Advanced Camera for Surveys of the Hubble Space Telescope in spectroscopic mode. The resulting time-series of 675 spectra covers the ...
  • Hubble Space Telescope transmission spectroscopy of the exoplanet HD 189733b: high-altitude atmospheric haze in the optical and near-ultraviolet with STIS 

    Sing, David K.; Pont, F.; Aigrain, Suzanne; Charbonneau, D.; Desert, J.-M.; Gibson, N.; Gilliland, R.L.; Hayek, W.; Henry, G.; Knutson, H.; Lecavelier des Etangs, A.; Mazeh, T.; Shporer, A. (Oxford University Press / Royal Astronomical Society, 2011)
    We present Hubble Space Telescope (HST) optical and near-ultraviolet transmission spectra of the transiting hot Jupiter HD 189733b, taken with the repaired Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) instrument. The resulting ...
  • Spin-orbit misalignment in the HD 80606 planetary system 

    Pont, F.; Hébrard, G.; Irwin, J. M.; Bouchy, F.; Moutou, C.; Ehrenreich, D.; Guillot, T.; Aigrain, Suzanne; Bonfils, X.; Berta, Z.; Boisse, I.; Burke, C.; Charbonneau, D.; Delfosse, X.; Desort, M.; Eggenberger, A.; Forveille, T.; Lagrange, A.-M.; Lovis, C.; Nutzman, P.; Pepe, F.; Perrier, C.; Queloz, D.; Santos, N.C.; Ségransan, D.; Udry, S.; Vidal-Madjar, A. (EDP Sciences, 2009)
    We recently reported the photometric and spectroscopic detection of the primary transit of the 111-day-period, eccentric extra-solar planet HD80606b, at Observatoire de Haute-Provence, France. The whole egress of the primary ...
  • Transit infrared spectroscopy of the hot Neptune around GJ 436 with the Hubble Space Telescope 

    Pont, F.; Gilliland, R.L.; Knutson, H.; Holman, M.; Charbonneau, D. (Oxford University Press / Royal Astronomical Society, 2009)
    The nearby transiting system GJ 436b offers a unique opportunity to probe the structure and atmosphere of an extrasolar ‘hot Neptune’. In this Letter, we present the main results of observations covering two transit events ...
