    • The MEarth-North and MEarth-South transit surveys: searching for habitable super-Earth exoplanets around nearby M-dwarfs 

      Irwin, Jonathan; Berta-Thompson, Zachory; Charbonneau, David; Dittmann, Jason Adam; Falco, Emilio; Newton, Elisabeth R; Nutzman, Philip (2014)
      Detection and characterization of potentially habitable Earthsize extrasolar planets is one of the major goals of contemporary astronomy. By applying the transit method to very low-mass M-dwarfs, it is possible to find ...
    • A Super-Earth Transiting a Nearby Low-Mass Star 

      Charbonneau, David; Berta, Zachory Kaczmarczyk; Irwin, Jonathan M; Burke, Christopher J.; Nutzman, Philip Andrew; Buchhave, Lars A.; Lovis, Christophe; Bonfils, Xavier; Latham, David W.; Udry, Stéphane; Murray-Clay, Ruth Ann; Holman, Matthew J.; Falco, Emilio E.; Winn, Joshua N.; Queloz, Didier; Pepe, Francesco; Mayor, Michel; Delfosse, Xavier; Forveille, Thierry (Nature Publishing Group, 2009)
