  • Physical characterization of near-Earth objects from the IMPACTON project

    IntroductionAsteroids lightcurves have been used extensively to derive many important physical characteristics such as rotational properties (rotational period and pole direction) and shape (Kaasalainen et al., 2004; Hanus et al., 2011; Durech et al., 2015), as well as to identify and characterize binary asteroids (Pravec et al., 2006). In addition

  • Physical properties of NEOs derived from their phase curves

    IntroductionThe observation of NEOs allows us to study the physical characteristics of the smallest size bodies of our Solar System as well as to impose constraints on their origin and evolution. Considering that these objects are in unstable orbits over the age of the Solar System, this implies that it is a transient population, which can be

  • Production rates of comet C2020/F3 (NEOWISE) from high resolution spectroscopy

    IntroductionComets are the leftovers from the formation of the Solar System. Understanding their composition allow us to investigate the physical and chemical processes occurring at the early stages of its formation. In this contribution we analyze high resolution spectra of comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) obtained with the High Accuracy Radial Velocity

  • Small-ELF: a propotype for the future ExoLife Finder hybrid optical telescope

    Technology now exists to enable large optical systems that are capable of resolving and measuring faint sources not accessible with current remote sensing instruments and detectors. The possibility of creating ground-based telescopes at the 50m-scale with sufficient wavefront control to both fully overcome the effects of the atmosphere, but with

  • Spins and shapes of V-type asteroids outside the dynamical Vesta family

    Vast majority of known V-type asteroids belong to the dynamical Vesta family. A small number of V-types in the mid and outer parts of the Main Asteroid Belt is considered unrelated to the fossil planetesimal (4) Vesta. These objects have low probability of dynamically evolving from the Vesta family and show spectral properties distinct from typical

  • Synergies between low- and high-resolution spectroscopy of exoplanet atmospheres

    The composition of several exoplanet atmospheres has been largely debated with contrasting results in the literature. Low- and high-resolution spectroscopy offer complementary views, although sometimes appear to be in sparkling contrast. We present a new approach to simultaneously model low- and high-resolution observation and apply this method to
