NIRSpec Engineering Templates
NIRSpec engineering templates summary
JWST uses pre-defined observation templates to support calibration submissions, and this article contains links to the templates for NIRSpec.
The NIRSpec Engineering templates/modes are used for calibration observations for the NIRSpec detectors. These operations may be to obtain darks, operate the focus mechanism, perform internal lamp exposures, anneal the MSA, detect and mask MSA shorts, characterize and run-in the filter and grating wheels, obtain images for engineering analysis, or support the JWST Optical Telescope Element (OTE) Multi-Instrument Multi-Field (MIMF) commissioning activities. The parameters described in this section are used to specify the Observations for NIRSpec Engineering modes. More complete descriptions of the detector readout parameters, filters, detector characteristics, etc. are available in Near Infrared Spectrograph, NIRSpec.
