Paper Abstract

The FUV Spectrographic Imager for IMAGE is simultaneously imaging auroras at 1218 and 1358 angstrom. It is designed to efficiently reject the Lyman-(alpha) emission line at 1215.7 angstrom. This paper describes the optical calibration. The content is: 1) field of view calibration: detector pixels location with respect to the reference optical cube; distortion matrix used to computer the TDI. b) Radiometric calibration: detector response and linearity; instrument throughput according to its clear aperture and mirror reflection lost; response vs. wavelength and band-rejection certification.
