Outline

Since 01 Jan 2016, CARMENES is conducting a 600-night exoplanet survey targeting ~300 M dwarfs during Guaranteed Time Observations. The main scientific objective of CARMENES is to carry out a survey of late-type main sequence stars with the goal of detecting low-mass planets in their habitable zones. In the focus of the project are very cool dwarf stars later than spectral type M4 and moderately active stars. We aim at being able to detect a 2 MEarth planet in the habitable zone of an M5 V star, which requires a long-term radial velocity precision of 1 m s-1 per measurement. For stars later than M4 V (M < 0.25 Msol), such precision will yield detections of super-Earths of 5 MEarth and smaller inside the entire width of the habitable zone. The CARMENES survey will thus provide a comprehensive overview of planetary systems around nearby Northern M dwarfs. By reaching into the realm of Earth-like planets, it will provide a treasure trove for follow-up studies probing their habitability.

At the same time, the CARMENES survey will generate a unique data set for studies of M dwarf star atmospheres, rotation, and activity. The spectra will cover important diagnostic lines for activity (Hα, Na I D1 and D2, and the Ca II infrared triplet), as well as FeH lines around 10,000 Å, from which the magnetic field can be inferred. Correlating the time series of these features with each other, and with wavelength-dependent radial velocities, will provide new insight into the physical properties of M dwarf atmospheres, and will provide excellent discrimination between planetary companions and stellar radial velocity "noise".
