The old MIT/LL upper chip R (replaced 2009-09) was expected to be a bit lower due to charge diffusion. The dotted curves plots 5/6 gives the "nominal" resolution (black) and one 5% lower (green).

This plot

This is the trending report for monitoring UVES Resolution based on QC parameters derived from wavelength calibration frames (WAVE_ECH). It trends the measured resolution in the Health Check calibrations which are taken in one BLUE (437nm) and one RED (580nm) setting. It also displays a comparison of measured resolutions to the nominal values.

The lower thresholds of plots 1-3 are set to the nominal expected resolution. Therefore results below these thresholds should be investigated closely.

The individual plots describe:

  1. measured resolution for the BLUE 437.0nm, 1x1, 0.4 arcs slit
  2. measured resolution for the REDL chip of the 580.0nm, 1x1, 0.3 arcs slit
  3. measured resolution for the REDU chip of the 580.0nm, 1x1, 0.3 arcs slit
    For these plots the value of the lower threshold is set to the value given in the user manual. The Upper Chip red lower threshold is set to 95% because of charge diffusion.
  4. measured resolution as a function of slit-width for all BLUE 437.0nm, 1x1 data
  5. measured resolution as a function of slit-width for all REDL 580.0nm, 1x1 data
  6. measured resolution as a function of slit-width for the REDU 580.0nm, 1x1 data
In black dotted curve plots 4/5/6: calculated values from the User Manual (see table below). Find more information about UVES wavelength solution monitoring here.

Note: The Upper chip R is expected to be a bit lower due to charge diffusion. This was especially true of the old MIT/LL chip, seems to be better for the new Upper chip.The dotted curves plots 5/6/7/8 gives the "nominal" resolution (black) and one 5% lower (green).

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
