J/A+A/475/359 Predicting radio fluxes of extrasolar planets (Griessmeier+, 2007)

Predicting low-frequency radio fluxes of known extrasolar planets. Griessmeier J.-M., Zarka P., Spreeuw H. <Astron. Astrophys. 475, 359 (2007)> =2007A&A...475..359G
ADC_Keywords: Planets ; Radio sources ; Magnetic fields Keywords: radiation mechanisms: non-thermal - catalogs - plasmas - planets and satellites: general Abstract: Close-in giant extrasolar planets ("Hot Jupiters") are believed to be strong emitters in the decametric radio range. We present the expected characteristics of the low-frequency magnetospheric radio emission of all currently known extrasolar planets, including the maximum emission frequency and the expected radio flux. We also discuss the escape of exoplanetary radio emission from the vicinity of its source, which imposes additional constraints on detectability. We compare the different predictions obtained with all four existing analytical models for all currently known exoplanets. We also take care to use realistic values for all input parameters. Description: Expected radio emission from presently known exoplanets. For each of the currently known exoplanets, we list its estimated magnetic moment, maximum radio emission frequency, plasma frequency in the ambient stellar wind, and radio fluxes according to three different models.

Note on table1.dat: All planets which are "potentially tidally locked" are listed twice: once as (TL), and once as (FR). All values are rounded, so that 0.0 precisely stands for <0.05.
