20 October 1993 NICMOS3 detector testing: methods and results
Author Affiliations +
A program is currently in process at Rockwell for the production of focal plane assemblies (FPA) for use on the University of Arizona Near Infrared Camera, Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS) instrument which is to be installed in the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) during a Space Shuttle mission in 1997. This paper describes the testing approach for the production of the FPA's, the tests to be performed, the test equipment, and facilities used in the built of two prototype FPA's used as engineering evaluation units (EEU). A sample of the data output from the various tests will be discussed for one of the EEU FPA's, both in the intermediate screen tests which will be described, and for the final performance tests.
