Ju l 2 00 0 Properties of PACE-I HgCdTe Detectors in Space-the NICMOS Warm-up Monitoring Program

We summarize the results of a monitoring program which was executed following the cryogen exhaustion of the NearInfrared Camera and MultiObject Spectrometer (NICMOS) onboard the Hubble Space Telescope. During the subsequent warm-up, detector parameters such as detective quantum efficiency, dark current, bias offsets, and saturation levels have been measured… CONTINUE READING
