The Wavelength Dependence of Interstellar Extinction from 1.25 to 8.0 μm Using GLIMPSE Data
We determine and tabulate A[λ]/AK, the wavelength dependence of interstellar extinction, in the Galactic plane for 1.25 μm ≤ λ ≤ 8.0 μm along two lines of sight: l = 42° and 284°. The first is aExpand
Absolute Calibration of the Infrared Array Camera on the Spitzer Space Telescope
ABSTRACT The Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) on the Spitzer Space Telescope is absolutely calibrated by comparing photometry of a set of A stars near the north ecliptic pole to predictions based onExpand
The Spitzer-WISE Survey of the Ecliptic Poles
We have carried out a survey of the north and south ecliptic poles, EP-N and EP-S, respectively, with the Spitzer Space Telescope and the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). The primaryExpand
Spectral Irradiance Calibration in the Infrared. XIV. The Absolute Calibration of 2MASS
Element by element, we have combined the optical components in the three cameras of the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS), and incorporated detector quantum efficiency curves and site-specificExpand
A model of the 8-25 micron point source infrared sky
We present a detailed model for the IR point-source sky that comprises geometrically and physically realistic representations of the Galactic disk, bulge, stellar halo, spiral arms (including theExpand
Spitzer Survey of the Large Magellanic Cloud: Surveying the Agents of a Galaxy's Evolution (SAGE). I. Overview and Initial Results
We are performing a uniform and unbiased imaging survey of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC; ~7° × 7°) using the IRAC (3.6, 4.5, 5.8, and 8 μm) and MIPS (24, 70, and 160 μm) instruments on board theExpand
Observational studies of pre-main-sequence evolution.
Optical scanner data from 4270 to 6710 A with a resolution of 7 A have been obtained for some 600 H..cap alpha.. emission stars listed in the compilation of T Tauri stars by Herbig and Rao and in theExpand
Spectral Irradiance Calibration in the Infrared. X. A Self-Consistent Radiometric All-Sky Network of Absolutely Calibrated Stellar Spectra
We start from our six absolutely calibrated continuous stellar spectra from 1.2 to 35 ?m for K0, K1.5, K3, K5, and M0 giants. These were constructed as far as possible from actual observed spectralExpand
The AKARI/IRC mid-infrared all-sky survey
Context. AKARI is the first Japanese astronomical satellite dedicated to infrared astronomy. One of the main purposes of AKARI is the all-sky survey performed with six infrared bands between 9  μ mExpand
