The Use of High‐Magnification Microlensing Events in Discovering Extrasolar Planets
Hundreds of gravitational microlensing events have now been detected towards the Galactic bulge, with many more to come. The detection of fine structure in these events has been theorized to be an excellent way to discover extra-solar planetary systems along the line-of-sight to the Galactic center. We show that by focusing on high magnification events the probability of detecting planets of Jupiter mass or greater in the lensing zone (.6 -1.6 R_E) is nearly 100 with the probability remainingdoi:10.1086/305729 fatcat:bx7ytzznu5h6tij7nlyapafeaa
