Optimized cutting off transit algorithm to study stellar rotation from PLATO mission light curves

Abstract

Measuring the stellar rotation of one of the components in eclipsing binaries (EBs) or planetary systems is a challenge task. The difficulty is mainly due to the complexity of analyzing, in the same light curve, the signal from the stellar rotation mixed with the transit signal of a stellar or substellar companion, like a brown dwarf or planet. There are many methods to correct the long-term trend of the light curve. However, the correction often erases the signal of the stellar rotation from spots crossing the visible stellar disk and other weaker signals like planets. In this work, we present the DiffeRencial flUx Method of cuTting Off biNariES (DRUM TONES) to identify the signal of the binary transits and disentangle it from stellar rotation planet signals. We present our technique with applications to EBs from CoRoT, Kepler, Kepler K2 and TESS missions. We also applied our method to simulated synthetic EB from the PLATO mission. Our method shows good agreement in the determination of stellar rotation periods for few observed targets from last space missions, as well it is naturally useful for future European mission, such as PLAnetary Transits and Oscillations of stars (PLATO).
