Murchison Widefield Array upper limits on radio emission from the Proxima Centauri exoplanetary system at 154 MHz
Anglada-Escude et al. (2016) recently reported the detection of an exoplanet orbiting our closest stellar neighbour, the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri. This system is known to produce transient radio emission at GHz frequencies (Lim et al 1996; Slee et al. 2003).
