Exoplanet discovery and characterisation through robotic follow-up of microlensing events: Season 2010 results
Microlensing searches for planets are sensitive to small, cold exoplanets from 1-6 AU from their host stars and therefore probe an important part of parameter space. Other techniques would require many years of observations, often from space, to detect similar systems. Microlensing events can be characterised from only ground-based observations over a relatively short (<=100d) timescales. LCOGT and SUPA/St Andrews are building a robotic global network of telescopes that will be well suited to follow these events. Here we present preliminary results of the Galactic Bulge observing season 2010 March-October.
