Several programs of exoplanets search and characterization have been started with SOPHIE at the 1.93-m telescope of Haute-Provence Observatory, France. SOPHIE is an environmentally stabilized echelle spectrograph dedicated to high-precision radial velocity measurements. The objectives of these programs include systematic searches for exoplanets around diﬀerent types of stars, characterizations of planet-host stars, studies of transiting planets through RossiterMcLaughlin eﬀect, follow-up observations of photometric surveys. The instrument SOPHIE and a review of its latest results are presented here.
