Radial Velocities of SWEEPS-04 (UVES/VLT)

Radial Velocity measurements of the star SWEEPS-04 based on VLT spectra. Black dots show the individual measurements during the four nights the star was observed. The red dashed curve shows the variation expected for a minimum-mass brown dwarf companion of 13 Jupiter masses. The blue curve is the formal fit which indicates that no radial velocity variation is detected, and rules out companion masses above 3.8 Jupiter masses.
