Andrew Vanderburg, Saul A. Rappaport, Andrew W. Mayo
2018 arXiv   pre-print
In addition to searching for exomoons, a radial velocity survey of directly imaged planets could reveal the orientations of the planets' spin axes, making it possible to identify Uranus analogs.  ...  The candidate moon around Kepler-1625b would induce a radial velocity signal of about 200 m/s on its host planet, large enough that similar moons around directly imaged planets orbiting bright, nearby  ...  Another way to increase the strength of the detection would be to use modern high-contrast adaptive optics imaging and coronagraphy to separate the starlight from the light of the planet.  ...
