Palomar Habitable Zone Planet Finder (PARVI)

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Photo shows pictures of a PARVI fiber coupling bench, a P3K + PARVI fiber coupling bench, a single mode fiber coupling, a EOM laser frequency comb, and a PARVI spectrograph.

Diffraction limited high resolution spectrograph for Doppler measurements of the host stars of extrasolar planets. This may enable the design of highly stable, high resolution spectrographs for astrophysics missions.

PARVI will couple to the Palm 3000 adaptive optics system at the Hale telescope at Palomar. It will conduct Doppler measurements of late type stars in search of low mass planetary companions. It may conduct follow-up activities for NASA TESS mission.
