Welcome to STARGATE


This is the homepage of the STARGATE Collaboration, Space Telescopes Advanced Research Group on the Atmospheres of Transiting Exoplanets. STARGATE is a collaboration of scientists across multiple institutions in the USA and UK with a focus on understanding and measuring the atmospheres of transiting exoplanets.

STARGATE use both observations and theoretical models to examine the environment of different exoplanets. Observations of transiting exoplanets and measurements of their atmospheres have been published using both ground- and space-based telescopes. Theoretical work includes 3D global circulation models, the generation of large forward model grids, and retrievals. We specialize in atmospheric characterization using the three main methods for transiting exoplanets; transmission, emission, and phase curves.
