Research Division Seminar
Ground Based Research of Exoplanets at Ondřejov (CZ) and IAC

Martin Blazek

Abstract

Ground based observations of exoplanets supporting space
missions are as important as the missions themselves. The exoplanet group
at the Czech Academy of Sciences (AI CAS), which has been formed in 2016,
uses the Ondřejov Echelle Spectrograph (OES) for exoplanet observations.
The OES is installed at 2-m Perek Telescope (CZ) and observations are
mainly focused on Kepler/K2 and TESS targets. I will present here latest
results from OES as well as activities of the exoplanetary group at AI CAS
together with future plans. As an Erasmus+ project student staying at IAC
I will also mention preliminary results of secondary eclipse observations
with four-colour MuSCAT2 photometer installed at 1.52-m Telescopio Carlos
Sanchéz of Teide Observatory.
