The M dwarf planet search program with the VLT+UVES

Abstract wrote:We present results from the precision radial velocity survey of M dwarfs with the VLT+ UVES in search for planetary companions. They include the first genuine brown dwarf desert object and several low-mass companion candidates around early-type M dwarfs. The lack of Jupiter-mass companions in this survey is comparable with results from other search programs. Upper limits to the mass of hypothetical planets can be placed down to the Earth mass regime in the habitable zones of our better observed stars.
