UBV(RI)C photometry of transiting planet hosting stars
MetadataShow full item record
We present new UBV(RI)C photometry of 22 stars that host transiting planets, 19 of which were discovered by the Wide Angle Search for Planets (WASP) survey. We use these data together with Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) JHKS photometry to estimate the effective temperature of these stars using the infrared flux method. We find that the effective temperature estimates for stars discovered by the WASP survey based on the analysis of spectra are reliable to better than their quoted uncertainties.
