<-   The current report on the discoveries  

The current report on exoplanet discoveries are unbalanced : the radial velocity method is by far the most successful. The balance should evolve in the future, with new techniques coming such as interferometry.

  • radial velocity : more than 150 discoveries
  • photometry : 7 discoveries/confirmations
  • astrometry : 2 confirmations (HST)
  • pulsars : 1(2) system
  • micro lenses : 1 case

An exhaustive and updated list of all the research projects (now or in the future) is available here : http://vo.obspm.fr/exoplanetes/encyclo/searches.php
