Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Hot Jupiters are an extraordinary class of exoplanets, orbiting their host stars with periods of hours to a few days. Some of these objects have day-side temperatures approaching photospheric temperatures of late K-type stars. I will give an overview of how we characterize the atmospheres of these fascinating objects and some the more recent exciting results to come from ground and space-based telescopes, as well as what the future holds for detailed characterization of short-period exoplanet atmospheres.
