GENERAL INFORMATION


Some AMBER calibration data are presently monitored to extract information about their quality and the instrument performance. The quality information is extracted into so-called QC parameters.

AMBER calibration data are pipeline-processed to create calibration products. The quality of the products is measured by QC1 parameters. Most QC1 parameters are obtained by pipeline procedures; some are measured by post-pipeline recipes.

The evolution of the QC1 parameters with time is evaluated by the trending process.

From P78, we are measuring some QC1 parameters from the technical calibration: Beam Position (position of the reference pixels for each instrument setting, this is just used for alignment) and from the Pixel to Visibility Map (P2VM): the internal instrumental Transfer Function and the offset between the different channels .
 
INSTRUMENT PROPERTIES TRENDED


From P78 the following parameters are trended :

In the P2VM

  • trending of the internal TF in the different spectral channels
  • trending of the value of the offset between the photometric channels
