"GHRS 3385b: Relative Sensitivity Monitor"  6/92

L. E. Walter and R.L. Gilliland

Abstract excerpted from the report:

The sensitivity of the GHRS in observations of BD +28 4211 at 5
wavelengths for 3 gratings (CAL 3385A) taken in May 1992 were compared
to the same observations taken in January 1992. Both a straight ratio
of the similar data sets and a ratio of the new sensitivities were
obtained for the wavelengths 1200A, 1500A, 2000A, 2500A, and 3000A.
Analysis is consistent with no change in sensitivity.

Also, the sensitivity of the GHRS in recent observations of Mu Col at
several wavelengths for 3 first order gratings (CAL 3385b) were
compared with previous data taken during SV (1356). The mean of the Mu
Col data were obtained from observations taken at 100 A intervals
between 1100-2300A for the grating G160M, between 1800-2300A for G200M,
and between 2300-2300A for G270M. The average ratio of new to old data
is 1.023 +/- 0.033.
