Disintegrating Exoplanets are a relatively new and very interesting area of astronomy that is the basis of my PhD. This will look at detecting disintegrating exoplanets using data from the wide angle search for planets. A collection of transit depth profiles will be made for each planet and collated into a planetary composition for each.
