S/N improves from ~100 to ~2500 per 3 km s1 pixel with ~2500 lines. DI Maps AB Dor DI Maps VW Cep ZDI Maps

AB Dor Benefits from the IR Spectral lines are less blended in the infrared. Hence, line profile variations are more clearly detected The Zeeman effect is enhanced for lines in the IR 2 Radiation flux and pulsation amplitudes increase with increasing wavelength for cooler stars. IR lines can probe different parts of the atmosphere.

Benefits from the IR Sun continuum contrast between photosphere and Tspot = 4250 K: 20% @ 0.6 m 70% @ 2.2 m

Resolving the telluric absorption lines (intrinsically narrow ~5 km s1) Pontoppidan & van Dishoeck, 2004, astroph 0405629 Zeeman sensitivity: the Fe I line at 1.56 m splits by twice the FWHM in 1.5 kG fields (slowly rotating stars): 2-3 times more sensitive than optical lines (Giampapa PASP 109)
