In order to test our detectors, we maintain a variety of sources of photon illumination, from simple LEDs to sophisticated calibrated large vacuum chamber systems. Some of our more specialised sources are
- Visible wavelength flat-field illuminator for bench or vacuum test of Gaia CCDs
- Radiometrically calibrated tungsten-halogen source for VIS-NIR
- Sources of X-ray photons and electrons
- Large-format point-source panel for geometrical calibration of optical systems for VIS-IR.
