Indian astronomers develop methodology to understand the Exoplanets accurately

New Delhi, November 19, 2021: Indian astronomers have developed an algorithm that can increase the accuracy of data from exoplanets by reducing the contamination by the Earth’s atmosphere and the disturbances due to instrumental effects and other factors. This algorithm, called the critical noise treatment algorithm, can help to study the environment of exoplanets with […]

Indian Astronomers find new method to study environment of extra solar planets using polarization of light

New Delhi, November 10, 2021: Indian Astronomers have found a new method to understand the atmosphere of extra solar planets. They have shown that planets going around stars other than the Sun can be studied by observing the polarization of light and studying polarization signatures. These polarization signatures or variations in scattering intensity of light […]
