DTM Scientists at Extremely Precise Radial Velocity Workshop

Paul Butler

Sharon Wang

Paul Butler and Sharon Xuesong Wang presented at the Extremely Precise Radial Velocity Workshop III hosted by Pennsylvania State University on August 14-17, 2017 in State College, PA. The focus of the meeting is on getting better radial velocity precision towards 10 cm/s aiming at detecting Earth-like extra-solar planets.

Butler was invited to give the opening talk on the history of the iodine cell precise radial velocity measurement technique. Wang gave a presentation on her RVxK2 project. Johanna Teske, a DTM Origins Fellow and incoming DTM Hubble fellow next year, also presented two talks, including one on Magellan's Planet Finder Spectrograph. Wang and Teske were both on the Scientific Organizing Committee of the conference.
