OGLE-TR-132b transits a very metal-rich F dwarf about 2000 pc from the Sun, in the Galactic disc towards Carina. It orbits very close to its host star (a = 0.03 AU) and has an equilibrium temperature of nearly 2000 K. Using rapid-cadence transit photometry from the FORS2 camera on the VLT and SUSI2 on the NTT, and high-resolution spectroscopy with UVES on the VLT, we refine the shape of the transit light curve and the parameters of the system. In particular, we improve the planetary radius estimate, R = 1.18 $\pm$ 0.07 $R_{\rm J}$ and provide very precise ephemeris, $T_{\rm tr}$ = 2 453 142.59123 $\pm$ 0.0003 BJD and P = 1.689868 $\pm$ 0.000003 days. The obtained planetary mass is 1.14 $\pm$ 0.12 $M_{\rm J}$. Our results give a slightly smaller and lighter star, and bigger planet, than previous values. As the VLT/FORS2 light curve obtained in this analysis with the deconvolution photometry algorithm DECPHOT shows a transit depth in disagreement with the one obtained by a previous study using the same data, we analyze them with two other reduction methods (aperture and image subtraction). The light curves obtained with the three methods are in good agreement, though deconvolution-based photometry is significantly more precise. It appears from these results that the smaller transit depth obtained in the previous study was due to a normalisation problem inherent to the reduction procedure used.

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access. An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.
  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account. In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see http://www.openly.com/openurlref/). You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
