On Measuring the Radial Velocity of Stars with Earth-Sized Planets

Colleen Casey
This project aimed to examine how Earth-sized exoplanets are found around stars using the radial velocity method. Calculations made using the method laid out in Fundamental Photon Noise Limit to Radial Velocity Measurements (Bouchy) attempted to find the quality factor for a synthetic spectrum, but had an error on the magnitude of 10^4, likely due to an error within the code. Using an interpolation function within Python, I recovered a radial velocity from an artificially...
