Abstract (from CDS):

We present the performances of a radial velocity measurement method that we developed for A-F type stars. These perfomances are evaluated through an extensive set of simulations, together with actual radial velocity observations of such stars using the ELODIE and HARPS spectrographs. We report the case of stars constant in radial velocity, the example of a binary detection on HD48097 (an A2V star, with vsin i equal to 90km/s) and a confirmation of the existence of a 3.9MJup planet orbiting around HD120136 (Tau Boo). The instability strip problem is also discussed. We show that with this method, it is in principle possible to detect planets and brown dwarfs around A-F type stars, thus allowing further study of the impact of stellar masses on planetary system formation over a wider range of stellar masses than is currently done.
