Iso's Short Wavelength Spectrometer -ultimate Sensitivity Reducing the Eeects of Cosmic Weather

Abstract

Compared to the pre-launch measurements, the in-orbit noise levels of the Short Wavelength Spectrometer (SWS) detectors show a sig-niicant increase, considerably lowering the overall sensitivity. Cosmic ray impacts on the detectors and/or on the instrument electronics play an important role in the noise levels and consequently many observations of faint… (More)
