Abstract: CARMENES (Calar Alto high-Resolution search for M dwarfs with Exoearths with Near-infrared and optical Echelle Spectrographs) is a next-generation instrument to be built for the 3.5 m telescope at the Calar Alto Observatory by a consortium of German and Spanish institutions. It consists of two separated spectrographs covering the wavelength ranges from 0.5 to 1.0 μm and from 1.0 to 1.7 μm with spectral resolutions R = 80,000 and 85,000, respectively. The spectrographs will be fed by fibers from the Cassegrain focus of the telescope, housed in a temperature-stabilized environment in vacuum tanks, calibrated using simultaneous emission lamps, and optimized for exoearth searches around M dwarfs.
