J/A+A/614/A84    C/O vs Mg/Si ratios in solar type stars (Suarez-Andres+, 2018)

C/O vs Mg/Si ratios in solar type stars: the HARPS sample. Suarez-Andres L., Israelian G., Gonzalez Hernandez J.I., Adibekyan V.Zh., Delgado Mena E., Santos N.C., Sousa S.G. <Astron. Astrophys. 614, A84 (2018)> =2018A&A...614A..84S (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)

Using 499 solar-like stars from the HARPS sample, we determined C/O and Mg/Si elemental abundance ratios to study the nature of the possible planets formed. We separated the planetary population in low-mass planets (<30M) and high-mass planets (>30M) to test for a possible relation with the mass. We find a diversity of mineralogical ratios that reveal the different kinds of planetary systems that can be formed, most of them dissimilar to our solar system. The different values of the Mg/Si and C/O can determine different composition of planets formed. {We found that 100% of our planetary sample present C/O<0.8. 86% of stars with high-mass companions present 0.8>C/O>0.4, while 14% present C/O values lower than 0.4. Regarding Mg/Si, all stars with low-mass planetary companion showed values between one and two, while 85% of the high-mass companion sample does. The other 15% showed Mg/Si values below one. No stars with planets were found with Mg/Si>2. Planet hosts with low-mass companions present C/O and Mg/Si similar to those found in the Sun, whereas stars with high-mass companions have lower C/O.
