It has been found that a close-in exoplanet causes small but measurable variability in the cores of a few lines in the spectra of several stars, which corresponds to the orbital period of the exoplanet. Stars with and without exoplanets may have different properties. The main goal of our study is to search for the influence that exoplanets might have on atmospheres of their host stars. Unlike the previous studies, we do not study changes in the spectrum of a host star or differences between stars with and without exoplanets. We aim to study a large number of stars with exoplanets and the current level of their chromospheric activity and to look for a possible correlation with the exoplanetary properties. Description: To analyse the chromospheric activity of stars, we exploited our own and publicly available archival spectra, measured the equivalent widths of the cores of Ca II H and K lines, and used them to trace their activity. Subsequently, we searched for their dependence on the orbital parameters and the mass of the exoplanet. Stellar spectra used in our analysis originate from two different sources. The main source is the publicly available Keck HIRES spectrograph archive. These spectra have a typical resolution of up to 85000. We carefully selected only those spectra with the signal-to-noise ratio high enough to measure the precise EQW of Ca II K emission. These data were accompanied by our own observations of several stars (HD 179949, HD 212301, HD 149143, and Wasp-18) with a close-in exoplanet. We obtained these data with the FEROS spectrograph mounted on the 2.2m ESO/MPG telescope (night 18/19.9.2010). File Summary:
