Paper Abstract

The calibration of photon counting imaging detectors for satellite based EUV astronomy is a complex process designed to ensure the validity of the data received "in orbit". We describe and illustrate the methods developed to accomplish calibration of microchannel plate detectors for the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE). The characterization of these detectors can be subdivided into three categories, stabilization, performance tests and environmental tests.
