  • Point Spread Function: PACS Photometer Point Spread function, version 1.01, 3 November 2010. A detailed document of the in-flight observed PSF. The accompanying tarball can be found here.
  • Herschel/PACS modelled point spread functions is a related document presenting Zemax modelled point spread functions for both an `ideal' and an 'as built' Herschel telescope model. Tarballs with corresponding broad-band and monochromatic PSFs for these two cases are at http://pacs.ster.kuleuven.ac.be/pubtool/PSF. Since the models do not capture all effects found in the observed PSFs, they are useful only in addition to the observed PSFs but cannot replace them.

  • Point Spread Function: PACS Photometer Point Spread function (5.5 M), version 1.01, 3 November 2010. A detailed document of the in-flight observed PSF. The accompanying tarball can be found here (31 Mb).

  • Point-source photometry: PACS uses 5 stars as primary calibrators with fluxes ranging from 0.6 to 15 Jy, plus other fainter stars and asteroids as secondary calibrators. A new responsivity calibration (version) will be deployed on the HCSS 7 track consistent with PICC-ME-TN-033 v1.01 and its associated encircled energy fraction (EEF). It improves the accuracy of photometry to 3% in the blue channel and 5% in the red channel. The new calibration is described in detail in the technical note"PACS photometer point-source flux calibration (PICC-ME-TN-037), version 1.0, 12 April 2011.

  • Extended emission photometry: There are two technical reports which assess the extended emission (or surface brightness) measured from PACS data to IRAS and Spitzer/MIPS data:
