13 December 2000 In-flight calibration of the XMM-Newton reflection grating spectrometers
Author Affiliations +
The activities during the instrument calibrations are summarized and first data are presented. The main instrument features, the line-spread function and the effective area, are discussed and the status of the in-flight calibrations is summarized.
