We used high-resolution CRIRES spectra of the M-dwarf GJ1002, which is an ideal target for the investigation of FeH, because it is only very slow rotating (<3km/s) and exhibits only weak magnetic fields. The identified lines stem mainly from the (0-0) and (1-1) vibronic transitions, but also from the (1-0), (2-1), (2-2), (3-2), and (4-3) transitions. For the confirmation of the identifications, we used means of statistic and cross-correlation as well as the line intensities. We corrected the theoretical positions if needed and scaled the line intensities till they match the observations. Description: In the pdf atlas (fehatlas.pdf), the identified FeH lines, were assigned with their molecular quantum numbers, which are in detail: lower and upper vibrational state, branch, lower rotational state, lower and upper omega, and the fraction to a possible blend. The latter one is unity if the line is not blended. In the atlas, we plotted the CRIRES spectrum of GJ1002 together with two computed spectra for an M dwarf model with logg=5.0, Teff=3100K and solar composition. One of the synthetic spectra is computed using the original Einstein A values provided by Dulick et al. (2003ApJ...594..651D) (red), the other one is computed with scaled Einstein A values (green). For both computed spectra, the line positions were adjusted. We also provide the spectra of GJ1002 (table2.dat), unscaled computations (table3.dat), and scaled computations (table4.dat). All spectra are normalized to unity.

Note (1): Classification of line following Schaade (1964BAN....17..311S): P = the line is present, and its width agrees well with the straight line of the diagram. Pb = the line is present, but its width is too large, i.e. lies above the straight line of the diagram. This could imply that the line is blended by an other element (or that its computed line strength is too small). R = the line strength is presumably reduced by perturbations. That means, that the computed line strength is too large, and the data point lies below the line. Q = we identified the line, but we can't verify its identification, because we only investigate lines with ΔΩ=0 in plot.
