Title: The SPIRou DRS

Presenter: Neil Cook


SPIRou is the first NIR instrument to reach a radial velocity precision of 2 m/s (targeting 1 m/s). This has meant many challenges in terms of the data pipeline. The SPIRou pipeline was based on the HARPS/SOPHIE pipeline but has undergone huge changes to be suitable for the NIR especially in terms of the H4RG detector, the optical design of SPIROU, the tellurics, and the wave solution. As well as this much effort has be put into making the pipeline more efficient, user friendly and adaptable.
