Project Title: Isolated planetary mass objects in the galaxy - alien worlds between stars

Recently we found a population of ¿free-floating¿ planets that appear not to be orbiting stars. Instead, they roam interstellar space. They could have formed in normal planetary systems and subsequently been ejected in gravitational interactions. A small population of such planets had long been anticipated, but, remarkably, our observations imply a large population, outnumbering stars by a factor of about two or more, thus implying that the process of planet formation is surprisingly chaotic. The new planets were found by a technique of Einstein in which the gravitational fields of stars are used as astronomical lenses. Previously we used this technique to study planets orbiting stars beyond their ¿snowlines¿ where ices form. Our results complemented those obtained on warmer planets by conventional methods. The free-floating planets were discovered as gravitational lenses of weaker power than stellar lenses. The discovery measurements were sensitive to free-floating planets of about Jupiter¿s mass or more. In this project we shall improve the sensitivity to enable lighter free-floating planets to be detected. These may be more prevalent, and it has been conjectured that some could be habitable. We shall also extend our former studies of planets orbiting stars to include lighter planets.

Project Title: MOA photometric database: A study of milions of variable stars - Postdoctoral Fellowship - Ljiljana Skuljan

The main goal of this research project will be to generate and analyse an exceptionally large database of variable stars and other objects observed by the MOA group (Microlensing Observations in Astrophysics) at Mt John University Observatory, Lake Tekapo, New Zealand. As part of MOA¿s routine observational programme in search for microlensing events, a huge amount of photometric data will be generated for tens of millions of stars towards the Galactic Bulge and Magellanic Clouds using the new 1.8-m telescope and a wide-field mosaic CCD camera. This valuable information is expected to significantly extend our knowledge about stellar physics and evolution. However, as a first step, the data will have to be organised into an appropriate database, which will easily be accessible for future analysis. Specialized software will be developed for automated data reduction and analysis of light curves, as well as the classification of variable stars into their types. A comprehensive analysis of various types of variable stars will be made. We can also expect that many new types of variability will be discovered. A stellar database of this size will be one of very few similar large-scale photometric surveys available in the world today. This will open new opportunities for New Zealand to become involved with any future large astrophysical projects.
