Paper Abstract

We report some of the laboratory measured performance parameters of the HRS. We then describe three aspects of performance of particular importance to astronomers: (1) the capability of detecting very weak features against a continuum, (2) the capability of producing reliable line profiles, and (3) the capability of assigning accurate wavelengths to spectral features. Specific technical descriptions of the performance of the HRS detectors (Eck and Beaver, this volume), gratings (Bottema et al., this volume), and control and data-handling system (Becker, this volume) are reported separately.
