Spectral response functions

Spectral response functions (bands) are provided for a number of instruments. These can be convolved with field spectra for comparison, ground truth or calibration purposes. The files can be loaded into MATLAB using the Post Processing Toolbox described above.

The Field Spectroscopy Facility does not gaurantee the accuracy or vailidty of these data. Please use them with care! We welcome all corrections, additions and contributions; please email iain@physics.org.
