NEID is a radial velocity (RV) instrument including an ultra-stabilized fiber-fed spectrograph, installed in 2019 at the 3.5m WIYN telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory. Accompanying it is a solar feed system built to supply the spectrograph with disk-integrated sunlight. Observing the Sun “as a star” is essential for developing and validating mitigation strategies for RV variations due to stellar activity and instrument systematics, thus enabling more-effective detections of lower-mass exoplanets. In this paper, we will detail the design of the NEID solar feed system and showcase early results addressing NEID systematics and solar RV variability.
