HARPS-N Home Page

Welcome on the home page of the HARPS-N Project!

The HARPS-N spectrograph is a high-precision radial-velocity instrument, similar to HARPS on the 3.6-m ESO telescope in Chile. It will be located in the Northern hemisphere and installed at the TNG on La Palma Island (Canary Islands) to allow for synergy with the NASA Kepler mission. The main scientific rationale of HARPS-N is the characterization and discovery of terrestrial planets by combining transits and Doppler measurements. 
The HARPS-N Project is a collaboration between the Astronomical Observatory of the Geneva University (lead), the CfA in Cambridge, the Universities of St. Andrews and Edinburgh, the Queens University of Belfast, and the TNG-INAF Observatory.
