Searching for the secondary eclipse of CoRoT-Exo-2b and its transit timing variations

Abstract:

With more than 80 transits observed in the CoRoT lightcurve with a cadence of 32 s, CoRoT-Exo-2b provides an excellent case to search for the secondary eclipse of the planet, with an expected signal of less than 10-4 in relative flux. The activity of the star causes a modulation on the flux that makes the detection of this signal challenging. We describe the technique used to seek for the secondary eclipse, that leads to a tentative 2.5σ detection of a 5.5×10-5 eclipse. If the effect of the s...
