A SOPHIE RV search for giant planets around young nearby stars (YNS)

Abstract : Context. The search of close (a 5 au) giant planet (GP) companions with radial velocity (RV) around young stars and the estimate of their occurrence rates is important to constrain the migration timescales. Furthermore, this search will allow the giant planet occurrence rates to be computed at all separations via the combination with direct imaging techniques. The RV search around young stars is a challenge as they are generally faster rotators than older stars of similar spectral types and they exhibit signatures of magnetic activity (spots) or pulsation in their RV time series. Specific analyses are necessary to characterize, and possibly correct for, this activity. Aims. Our aim is to search for planets around young nearby stars and to estimate the GP occurrence rates for periods up to 1000 days. Methods. We used the SOPHIE spectrograph on the 1.93 m telescope at the Haute-Provence Observatory to observe 63 A − M young (<400 Myr) stars. We used our Spectroscopic data via Analysis of the Fourier Interspectrum Radial velocities software to compute the RVs and other spectroscopic observables. We then combined this survey with the HARPS YNS survey to compute the companion occurrence rates on a total of 120 young A − M stars.
