What corrections are applied to the individual PSPC events?

(5/1/92)


The following corrections are applied to each PSPC event:

  • ADC nonlinearity correction (A)
  • gain saturation correction (A)
  • temporal gain correction (A)
  • electronic position correction (P)
  • position-dependent gain correction (A)
  • window correction (P)
  • off-axis correction (P)

The (A) indicates the correction affects the amplitude, while the (P) indicates the correction affects the position.
