This plot

The wavelength day calibration consists in using the MIDI heated blackscreen and taking 3 exposures through different narrow-band filters [NeII], [SIV] and [ArIII] (having central wavelengths accurately measured in the laboratory by the manufacturer). An extra exposure is taken through a polycarbonic foil that has several absorption lines in its N-band spectrum. Exposures without filters and with closed shutter are also taken to process the exposures with filters. From the spectra obtained through the filters a fit of the lambda(X) function is performed. The procedure is performed for each setup (PRISM or GRISM, and SCI_PHOT or HIGH_SENS). The MIDI HIGH_SENS mode uses 2 windows on the detector (R1 and R2). The MIDI SCI_PHOT mode uses 4 windows (R1 to R4) We monitor here the stability of the dispersion by plotting the wavelength of a spectral channel given by the lambda(X) function computed by the reduction of the calibration data. The selected spectral channels corresponds to the expected central wavelength of the three narrow-band filters.  


General information

Click on any of the plots to see a close-up version.

If applicable, the latest values from Paranal ops logs are plotted as blue dots. More information about those values, including a download option, is available in the OPS column.

The latest date is indicated on top of the plot, data points belonging to that date are specially marked.

If configured,

  • statistical averages are indicated by a solid line, and thresholds by broken lines
  • outliers are marked by a red asterisk. They are defined as data points outside the threshold lines
  • "aliens" (= data points outside the plot Y limits) are marked by a red arrow ( or )
  • you can download the data for each parameter set if the 'Data downloads' link shows up
