Abstract
Two methods which together allow sensitivity calibration from 20 Å to 430 Å are described in detail. The first method, useful up to 120 Å, uses a low power source to generate K∝ X-rays which are alternately viewed by an absolute detector (a proportional counter) and the spectrometer. The second method extends that calibration to 430 Å. It relies on the 2:1 brightness ratio of bright doublet lines from impurity ions which have a single outer shell electron and which are present in hot, magnetically confined plasmas. It requires that the absolute sensitivity of the spectrometer be known at one wavelength point, and in practice requires a multi-element spectral detector.
