Abstract:

The results of calibration proposal 6942 aimed at verifying the linearity of WFPC2 for various exposure times and operating modes are described and analyzed. For count rates exceeding 0.5DN/s, WFPC2 appears to be linear to better than 0.5%. Results at very low count levels are less conclusive given the low signal-to-noise.
