Follow-up of Transiting Planet Candidates

Planets that transit their host stars are extremely interesting, as it is possible to study their physical properties, such as their density and atmospheric composition. As part of a search for such planets, we are following-up candidates in order to eliminate those that mimic transits, but are in fact caused by other astrophysical scenarios such as eclipsing binaries stars.
