Paper Abstract

The Photoconductor Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS) is one of the scientific core instruments on board of the ESA Horizon 2000 Cornerstone Mission FIRST: The PACS instrument can operate as a dual-band imaging photometer or as an integral-field spectrometer. The scientific instrument, designed for remote measurements of astronomical far- infrared emissions, incorporates several temperature levels between 1.7 and 15 K in order to keep the self-emission of the instrument at a low level.
