Paper Abstract

High resolution spectroscopy enables the detection of atmospheres of exoplanets. To reach the required radial velocity precision of about 1 m/s, calibration with even more precise sources is mandatory. HIRES will employ several calibration sources, the most important ones are an Laser Frequency Comb (LFC) and Fabry-P´erots (FP). The LFC needs to be filtered with a set of FP. One possible solution is to illuminate this set of FP with a broadband light source and use them as calibrators, when they are not used for filtering the LFC. It has been demonstrated that passively-stabilized FP can perform better than 10 cm/s per night. We give an overview of the currently used FP in different surveys and compare their individual features. For the FP which may be used in HIRES we discuss different configuration. We show that the Finesse and FSR of the FP needs to be optimized with regard to the resolution of the spectrograph and we outline how we aim to fulfill the requirements of HIRES.
