The Search for Archive Holding service (also referred to as the Inventory Service) provides a list of all data in the Exoplanet Archive corresponding to a user-specified object or location.
There are three methods for searching the archive:
For best results, we strongly recommend using Firefox version 15.x or newer when using the interactive tables. Internet Explorer is currently not supported by this interface.
Also, please make sure your browser is set to allow pop-up windows from exoplanetarchive.ipac.caltech.edu. For more information, read the respective help file for your browser version and platform:
In this mode, enter a single object name: either the name of a star or the name of a planet. If the object is in the Confirmed Planet or KOI (Kepler Object of Interest) list in the Exoplanet Archive, you will be taken to the Overview page for that object. The accepted identifier and catalog syntax is described on the Search for Archive Holdings page.
To search for objects not in the Confirmed Planet or KOI tables, use the Single Location/Object method.
Note: The service currently does not search on KELT light curve names, such as KELT_N02_lc_051483_V01_east. The time series will appear in search results, but the allowed identifiers are astronomical object names (like stars and planets) or coordinates. We will support searches for particular time series names in a future release.
Also, if you enter "K2" without a number, the service returns the Overview page for KOI-2. To view other K2 Overview pages, specify the K2 number (e.g., K2-1, K2-2 or K2-3).
In this mode, either a single object name or a location is entered. For formatting guidance:
A search radius is also required for this mode. The results for this mode is a list of all holdings in the archive matching this object AND falling within the specified search radius.
Note: Even if a single planet is given as input, all planets in that system will be included in the input as they are within the search radius. The input object name column contains a link that, when clicked, will produce the Overview page for that object.
If an object name has been entered, the results page will indicate exact matches with an asterisk in the object name or ID column and an orange background for the row.
The Summary section of the results page includes the number of matches in each category of data and the following sections include details for each of these categories.
In this search, a list of object names and/or locations is uploaded and the search is performed on each. A search radius is required. Note that a mixture of object names and locations is allowed.
The intital result from this query is a summary table with one row for each input object or location and the count of matching objects in each data category within the specified search radius.
Note: Even if a single planet is given as input, all planets in that system will be included in the input as they are within the search radius. The input object name/location column is a link that, when clicked, will produce the results page for that object/location as described above for the Single location/object search.
If an entry in the list has the correct catalog syntax but does not appear in the Exoplanet Archive or SIMBAD catalogs, "Invalid object" is displayed in the returned column.
If the list contains object names or locations that do not have the correct syntax, an error message will include a list of the problem entries. The input list will need to be corrected before the search will run. The accepted identifier and catalog syntax is described on the Search for Archive Holdings page.
