Promises and Challenges of the Roman Microlensing Survey
The Roman microlensing survey is expected to detect thousands of cold planets and will revolutionize our understanding of the exoplanet demographics, as well as planet formation mechanisms. I will present the microlensing technique and highlight its unique capabilities, and present the Roman microlensing survey, as well as the challenges that will bring this unique dataset.
Speaker: Etienne Bachelet (Institut Astrophysique de Paris)
