25 September 2012 Performances and results of the detector acquisition system of the GIANO spectrometer
Author Affiliations +
GIANO is a high resolution (R≃50,000) cryogenic IR spectrograph covering the 0.95-2.5μm wavelengths range. It is equipped with a Hawaii-II PACE array. We present the main results and performances of the detector and acquisition system. We also describe a few special features which have been developed to optimize the noise performances and minimize spurious effects intrinsic to the detector, such as reset anomaly, cross-talking and radioactive-like events.
