HARPS Laser Frequency Comb commissioning data release

Published: 17 Mar 2016

The first commissioning run of the HARPS Laser Frequency Comb (LFC) was held from 8 – 17 April 2015. The HARPS LFC is described in a Messenger article (Lo Curto et al. 2012). During this commissioning, the emphasis was mainly on calibration but several science spectra were acquired: four asteroids and twenty stars were repeatedly observed to monitor their radial velocity variations and to compare with published data.
