Homogeneous comparison of planet candidates imaged directly until 2008

Post by Michael Johne on 5th May 2009, 5:29 am

Hi!

http://arxiv.org/abs/0905.0439

We present a compilation of the planet candidates currently known from direct imaging. We have gathered available data from the literature and derive the luminosity of all candidates in a homogeneous way using a bolometric correction, the distances and the K band magnitudes of the objects. In a final step we find the masses of the candidates from a comparison of the luminosity or, if not available, an absolute brightness and several well known hot-start evolutionary models.
Bye!

I'm surprised this thread didn't receive more attention.

There are several objects in there which aren't listed at EPE, but may be "planets" depending on how you define the term, most notably DH Tau B.

Yeah, I saved the paper to my computer and I don't know what to do with it. Perhaps its that ambiguity you highlighted that has kept me from getting too excited over it.
