Paper Abstract

Results from a pre-launch in-band spectral characterization of the 21-channel HIRDLS flight instrument will be presented. These data were obtained during a pre-launch calibration of HIRDLS at Oxford University (Fall 2002). A monochromator, equipped with a controllable diffraction grating, was used to produce monochromatic light for these tests. The monochromator was enclosed, with HIRDLS, in a large vacuum chamber. The monochromator was also equipped with a polarizer, which allowed for data to be procured at known orthogonal polarizations for each channel. A calibration detector, with a flat spectral response, was used to monitor the output from the monochromaotr. This report will consist of a description of the analyiss methodlogy, leading to an unpolarized instrument spectral response function for each channel.
