  1. A Global Network for Planet Detection and Asteroseismology Study using Extremely high Precision Extrasolar Planet Tracker Instruments Jian Ge, University of Florida UF team members: Bo Zhao, John Groot, Liang Chang, Xiaoke Wan, Frank Varosi, Scott Powell, Kevin Hanna, Peng Jiang, Scott Fleming, Brian Lee, Rohan Pais, Ji Wang, Liming Dou, Jian Liu, Erin Costello, Adriana Delgado-Navarro, Sandeep Reddy Bollampally, Troy Bosman, Sid Schofield, Bo Ma, & Hali Jakeman EXPERT Network International Members: T. Wang (China team leader), J.L. Zhou, W.M. Yuan, H.Y. Zhou, J.M. Bai, Y.F., Fan., S.H. Gu, & E. Martin (Spanish team leader)

  2. Strategy for Building a Global Doppler Network • Take advantage of retiring 2 meter telescopes and convert them into semi-dedicated telescope network for long term surveys • Develop low-cost, compact, robust, low maintenance, but high precision and throughput Doppler instruments • Target bright F,G,K dwarfs (V<8) with slow rotation for detection of super Earth mass planets, including habitable ones • Integrate at least 15 min to minimize RV noises from stellar oscillations for low mass planet detection • A nearly perfect match of ~15 min exposure time requirements and photon noise limit offered by a 2 meter telescope for 0.5-1 m/s • For asteroseismology, only target V<5 stars and ~1 min exposures Key: new technology Doppler instruments

  3. Australia ? Hawaii ? Chile ? Global Extremely High Precision Exoplanet Tracker Network Spain SET, 11? USA EXPERT, Sept. 09 China LiJET, June, 10 • Offer continuous high precision radial velocity measurements for V<8 FGK stars with 0.5-1 m/s Doppler precision in 30 min • Follow up planet candidates from SDSS-III MARVELS planet survey • Compact and low cost design (~$750K per instrument including hardware and labor; cost may be further reduced for smaller telescopes)

  4. High Precision RV Mode Prism Echelle 4kx4k CCD Collimator-camera Slit Output 1 Output 2 Fiber input Michelson Interferometer • A combination of a fixed-delay interferometer with a high throughput cross-dispersed echelle spectrograph with R=18,000 • A simultaneous wavelength coverage of 0.39-0.70 m • 0.5-1 m/s in 30 min for V< 8 solar type stars with 2 m telescopes 4
