EPIC Calibration Meeting October 2006, Mallorca

overview
Overview
  • Paper on this topic published in 2006 A&A 458, 541
  • Absolute Calibration Soft X-rays

 dependant on model spectra of WDs

what models to use?, uncertainties?

  • Analyse LETG + HRC-S data HZ 43A, Sirius B and RX J1856.5-3754

 determine spectral parameters

 improve effective area.

  • Compare obtained photon spectra with EUVE and ROSAT

and XMM (work together with Frank Haberl)
