ROSAT Guest Observer Facility

What UV sensitivity does the HRI have?


The HRI is sensitive to UV of about 1600A wavelength. The sensitivity is nearly completely contained within the first few channels (about 50 percent in channels 1 and 2, and about 90 percent within channels 1-4). This sensitivity will be a problem for any soft x-ray sources.
