Fig. 1


Toy model of the phase-dependent Doppler shift of TiO lines along the orbit of HD 209458b. The white curves represent TiO-emission features owing to the inversion layer (greatly enhanced for visual purposes). During transit around φ = 0, TiO produces slanted absorption lines (black). The black vertical lines are stellar absorption lines, which are stable in time. This difference in the behaviour of stellar and planetary features provides a means of contrast between star and planet.
