|Outline of Final Research Achievements
Microlensing method in planet hunting is done by wide field survey to find microlensing events then follow-up observations to find anomaly caused by the planet. This study is aimed to conduct follow-up observations with telescopes including Mt John 61 cm B&C and SAAO 1.4 m IRSF. The planets discovered are expected to use understanding formation of the planets.
The progress of the study was fairly good. Total number of planets discovered in the period of this study is 29. In those planets, there were several interesting discoveries including two earth mass planet orbiting a member of M dwarf binary. Including those planets, the number of planets discovered with microlensing become 26. Statistical analyses are in progress to understand formation of planets.
