Temperature-Dependent Dark Generator

NOTE: This tool creates darks for data taken BEFORE January 4, 1999! These darks will not properly calibrate any data taken during Cycle 11 and beyond.

A web-based tool to generate temperature-dependent dark current reference files for MULTIACCUM data is now available.

Temperature dependent dark reference files will correct for the shading, a temperature dependent component of the detector bias; this is critical to the calibration process.
