Re-observation of CoRoT-7b with CoRoT
Susana Barros and the CoRoT team


CoRoT-7b was re-observed by CoRoT from the 10th of January 2012 to the 29th of March 2012 in the imagette mode.
During this run 90 new transits were obtained. These were combined with the previous 153 transits obtained in the discovery run and the radial velocity observations to derive accurate system parameters.
I will present the updated system parameters and discuss the implications for the nature of the first transiting super-Earth discovered. I will also present a study of the transit times of CoRoT-7b.
