Instrument Detectors

STIS has three large-format (1024 x 1024 pixel) detectors; one CCD and two Multi-Anode Microchannel Array (MAMA) detectors. The CCD has a 52 x 52 arcsecond quare field of view and operates from ~2000 to 10,300 Å. The MAMAs operate in the Near and Far UltraViolet and both have a 25 x 25 arcsecond square field of view. The NUV operates from 1600 to 3100 Å while the FUV operates from 1150 to 1700 Å.
