- 2. The on-axis in orbit and on ground 1.5 keV PSFs of the
different X-ray telescopes
- 3. Basic numbers for the science modes of EPIC
- 4. Detection limits (i.e., minimum detectable flux at
4 in units of erg cm s)
for different energy bands in
the 1.16 Ms observation of the Lockman Hole (Hasinger et al., 2001, A&A 365, L45; Brunner et al. 2008, A&A, 479, 283).
- 5. The effect of pile-up on spectral fits
- 6. EPIC Out-of-Time (OoT) events. The percentage of OoT events is
given by the mode dependent ratio of readout time and integration time
- 7. List of EPIC event patterns
- 8. RGS In-orbit Performance
- 9. Wavelength and energy ranges covered by the chips
of RGS1 and RGS2 for an on-axis source in first order. Due to the
scattering, the chip boundaries do not cause sharp features in the
effective area. Values in brackets correspond to the

Spectroscopy mode and using 8 CCDs
- 12. RGS science data acquisition modes
- 13. RGS1 detector defects and corresponding wavelengths for on-axis sources.
- 14. RGS2 detector defects and corresponding
wavelengths for on-axis sources. Since the introduction
of single-node operations, the node boundary that applies between
the two nodes of the RGS1 CCDs is no longer relevant in RGS2.
