22 October 1999 Measurement and modeling of the detector response of the pn-EPIC aboard XMM
Author Affiliations +
The pn-EPIC system flight module of XMM was calibrated using the IAS synchrotron facility at Orsay, France. Based on this measurements, a model for the energy response of the pn-CCD was fitted to the data. Only one of the fitted parameters shows significant spatial dependence, while the others only depend on energy. Based on the interpolated parameters, the detector response matrix has been calculated using the partial event model. The validity of this matrix has been tested on existing calibration data. The detector response matrix will be used to analyze spectral observation data taken with pn-EPIC on XMM.
