Automatic Detector Quality Control

We provide real-time automatic detector quality control for most of the available detectors at the ING. We measure quantities such as bias level, readout noise, sky level and sigma, FWHM, and gain in optical and NIR detectors, and linearity in optical detectors. Information about the detector quality control system can be found in the Automatic Detector Quality Control Manual (only available within ING).

We present a subset of these data below, organised by night, instrument and configuration, along with some trend graphs over different timescales. Although most detectors have many different possible combinations of readout speed and binning, we attempt to monitor the most frequently used configurations.
