  • A short-period sub-Earth orbiting Proxima Centauri

    The discovery of a planetary candidate orbiting the habitable zone of our closest neighbor, Proxima Centauri (Gl 551), shook the planetary community as few other discoveries have done in recent years. It not only showed that the nearest star to the Sun could host a planetary system but also that, given the right conditions, it could host a

  • An observational test to planet formation theories around low-mass stars

    Planets smaller than Neptune are ubiquitous in the Galaxy and those around M stars constitute the bulk of warm and temperate worlds amenable for detailed atmospheric characterization. In this talk, we present a re-analysis of all the available data on small transiting planets around M dwarfs, refining their masses and radii (Luque & Pallé 2022, in

  • Euclid preparation. I. The Euclid Wide Survey

    Euclid is a mission of the European Space Agency that is designed to constrain the properties of dark energy and gravity via weak gravitational lensing and galaxy clustering. It will carry out a wide area imaging and spectroscopy survey (the Euclid Wide Survey: EWS) in visible and near-infrared bands, covering approximately 15 000 deg2 of

  • Euclid preparation. XIX. Impact of magnification on photometric galaxy clustering

    Aims: We investigate the importance of lensing magnification for estimates of galaxy clustering and its cross-correlation with shear for the photometric sample of Euclid. Using updated specifications, we study the impact of lensing magnification on the constraints and the shift in the estimation of the best fitting cosmological parameters that we

  • Euclid preparation. XVIII. The NISP photometric system

    Euclid will be the first space mission to survey most of the extragalactic sky in the 0.95-2.02 µm range, to a 5 σ point-source median depth of 24.4 AB mag. This unique photometric dataset will find wide use beyond Euclid's core science. In this paper, we present accurate computations of the Euclid YE, JE, and HE passbands used by the Near-Infrared
