HRC Calibration Information

This page contains current and historical documents regarding calibration of Chandra's High Resolution Camera (HRC). Items are organized by topic (see menu on left) and are ordered by date for each topic, with most recent items at the top. For topics with on-going monitoring or calibration (e.g. background, gain correction) the status is summarized at the top of each section.
