ALFOSC Arc Lamps and Maps for CCD#14


Mounted lamps

  • For more than a decade we have the following lamps installed in ALFOSC: Halogen, Helium, Neon, Thorium-Argon (faint).
  • See this page for typical exposure times for the different grisms.
  • Note that Helium and Neon can be switched-on at the same time, as in fact any other combination of installed lamps.

    Spectral lamps from Osram: Ne, He
    Hollow cathode lamps from Cathodeon/Heraeus: Th-Ar

    Other lamps

    Check here for info on other arc lamps used or tested with the old CCD#7 or CCD#8.


    Line lists

    The line lists used for these maps are based on IRAF line lists, updated with identifications by Moore (1959) and Coluzzi's (1993).
    The ThAr list was checked against obvious blends using FIES(NOT)/MUSICOS(ING)/UES(ING) arc maps.
  • Helium
  • Neon
  • Thorium Argon

    A description of the IRAF line lists used: idhenear.dat and thar.dat.


    Arc maps for wavelength calibration


    NB: These arc maps give no indication of exposure times needed!!
    NB: These arc maps were made using a 0.5 arcsec slit!!

    Notes:

  • Wavelength ranges marked '!' are for CCD#8, the CCD#14 range is about 10% wider
  • If there is no map in the table above yet, try a CCD#7/CCD#8 map
  • a) Grism 11 was used in the filter wheel
