Abstract

This report presents the analysis of GHRS D1 and D2 detector
calibrations encompassing Cycles 4, 5, and 6. Calibration tests
examined include: dark count measurements, focus checks, flat-field
count rates, sample mapping function, and line mapping function tests.
Additional flat-field data from Cycles 1 to 3 were processed and
displayed to demonstrate the continuing decreasing trend in the
flat-field lamps response. Results of these analyses indicate the
instrument has remained stable throughout the past three Cycles.
