Context. The star HD 52265 is a G0V metal-rich exoplanet-host star observed in the seismology field of the CoRoT space telescope from November 2008 to March 2009. The satellite collected 117 days of high-precision photometric data on this star, showing that it presents solar-like oscillations. HD 52265 was also observed in spectroscopy with the Narval spectrograph at the same epoch.
Aims. We characterise HD 52265 using both spectroscopic and seismic data.
Methods. The fundamental stellar parameters of HD 52265 were derived with the semi-automatic software VWA, and the projected rotational velocity was estimated by fitting synthetic profiles to isolated lines in the observed spectrum. The parameters of the observed p modes were determined with a maximum-likelihood estimation. We performed a global fit of the oscillation spectrum, over about ten radial orders, for degrees l = 0 to 2. We also derived the properties of the granulation, and analysed a signature of the rotation induced by the photospheric magnetic activity.
Results. Precise determinations of fundamental parameters have been obtained: Teff = 6100 ± 60 K, log g = 4.35 ± 0.09, [M/H] = 0.19 ± 0.05, as well as . We have measured a mean rotation period Prot = 12.3 ± 0.15 days, and find a signature of differential rotation. The frequencies of 31 modes are reported in the range 1500–2550 μHz. The large separation exhibits a clear modulation around the mean value . Mode widths vary with frequency along an S-shape with a clear local maximum around 1800 μHz. We deduce lifetimes ranging between 0.5 and 3 days for these modes. Finally, we find a maximal bolometric amplitude of about 3.96 ± 0.24 ppm for radial modes.
