NIRCAM Sensitivity

NIRCam sensitivities shown here are 10-sigma detections in 10,000 seconds for point sources extracted using an aperture with a radius of the larger of 2.5 pixels or 1.2 λ/D. The table at the end lists all values that have been plotted.

All NIRCam Sensitivities

All NIRCam filter sensitivities on one plot. Dots are wide filters, squares are medium filters, and triangles are narrow filters. Horizontal lines indicate filter bandpasses when they are larger than the symbols.

The next three plots show wide, medium and narrow filters separately.
