A precise optical transmission spectrum of the inflated exoplanet WASP-52b

Abstract:

We have measured a precise optical transmission spectrum forWASP-52b, a highly inflated hot Jupiter with an equilibrium temperature of 1300 K. Two transits of the planet were observed spectroscopically at low resolution with the auxiliary-port camera on the William Herschel Telescope, covering a wide range of 4000-8750 Å. We use a Gaussian process approach to model the correlated noise in the multiwavelength light curves, resulting in a high precision relative transmission spectrum with error...
