12 September 2017 Line profile analysis of the laser frequency comb in FOCES
Author Affiliations +
FOCES is a fiber-fed, stabilized high-resolution (R ∼ 70,000) spectrograph attached to the 2m Fraunhofer Telescope in Wendelstein Observatory. An optical, broad-band laser frequency comb with the repetition rate of 25 GHz is used as the wavelength calibration source to obtain the precise radial velocities. We describe our method of modelling the instrumental profiles. A Gaussian plus an empirical spline function are used to fit the line spread function (LSF). We also present the results of obtaining radial velocities from an overlap of stellar spectra and emission lines of the laser frequency comb.
