Astrophysicists use artificial intelligence to determine exoplanets sizes
A team of Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço researchers developed a way to constrain the radius of an exoplanet knowing its mass, using a machine learning technique.
From Venus to other worlds
Unprecedented precision in the measurements of winds on Venus made use of an instrument built to study exoplanets, in a work led by researchers of Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA).
Astronomers observe a Cosmic Jellyfish
An international team, with the participation of an Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) researcher, used data from the ALMA radiotelescope to produce a detailed map of the gas tails of the ESO137-001 galaxy.
Gaia-ESO survey helps to estimate the age of giant stars
With data from this survey, partly analyzed by the Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA), researchers determined that the C/N abundance ratio can be used to estimate the age of giant stars.
A new measurement technique found at the frontier between Physics and Astronomy
The scattering of laser light in the atmosphere enables the measurement of the accuracy of astronomical spectrographs, through a technique demonstrated for the first time with the participation of researchers of the Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço.
