Paper Abstract

Traditional photoconductive detectors are used at 70 and 160 microns in the Multiband Imaging Photometer for SIRTF. These devices are highly sensitivity to cosmic rays and have complex response characteristics, all of which must be anticipated in the data reduction pipeline. The pipeline is being developed by a team at the SIRTF Science Center, where the detailed design and coding are carried out, and at Steward Observatory, where the high level algorithms are developed and detector tests are conducted to provide data for pipeline experiments. A number of innovations have been introduced. Burger's model is used to extrapolate to asymptotic values for the response of the detectors. This approach permits rapid fitting of the complexities in the detector response. Examples of successful and unsuccessful fits to the laboratory test data are shown.
