Abstract / Description of output

The high-accuracy and high-precision HARPS-N spectrograph has been installed at the italian Telescopio Nazionale Galileo in La Palma approximately two years and a half ago. Eighty nights per year of Guaranteed Time of Observation are mostly dedicated to the radial-velocity (RV) follow up of Kepler small-size planetary candidates to establish their nature and to determine accurately their masses. We report on recent results of this ongoing RV campaign, including the recent characterization of the planetary system Kepler-101.
