OGLE-2017-BLG-1130: The First Binary Gravitational Microlens Detected From Spitzer Only
We analyze the binary gravitational microlensing event OGLE-2017-BLG-1130 (mass ratio q~0.45), the first published case in which the binary anomaly was only detected by the Spitzer Space Telescope. This event provides ...
OGLE-2017-BLG-1522: A giant planet around a brown dwarf located in the Galactic bulge
We report the discovery of a giant planet in the OGLE-2017-BLG-1522 microlensing event. The planetary perturbations were clearly identified by high-cadence survey experiments despite the relatively short event timescale ...
Spitzer Opens New Path to Break Classic Degeneracy for Jupiter-Mass Microlensing Planet OGLE-2017-BLG-1140Lb
We analyze the combined Spitzer and ground-based data for OGLE-2017-BLG-1140 and show that the event was generated by a Jupiter-class (m_p\simeq 1.6 M_jup) planet orbiting a mid-late M dwarf (M\simeq 0.2 M_\odot) that ...
OGLE-2016-BLG-1266: A Probable Brown-Dwarf/Planet Binary at the Deuterium Fusion Limit
We report the discovery, via the microlensing method, of a new very-low-mass binary system. By combining measurements from Earth and from the Spitzer telescope in Earth-trailing orbit, we are able to measure the ...
