OGLE-417: A radial velocity testbed for microlensing

Alexandre Santerne

In this cookie seminar, I will present the microlensing object OGLE-417 which is an unique case of a relatively bright binary lens that was observed in 2011. This object has been proposed by Gould et al. (2013) as a radial velocity testbed for microlensing event. I will present the preliminary results we obtained on this target using the UVES spectrograph at VLT as well as the prospective of our work. In this cookie, I will present the work done by Wissam Fakhardji who visit us from February 24 to 28.
