IRIM Plots

ASCII listings of the transmission vs wavelength for the individual IRIM filters may be obtained by anonymous ftp from the subdirectory kpno/filters/IRdata. The files are named IRIMJ, IRIMH,... Except for the K' filter, these traces are from vendor-supplied plots with the filter at 77 K. The K' filter curve was shifted 2% shortward to approximate the wavelength shift which occurs when the filter is cooled to 77 K.

Individual PostScript files of the filter transmission curves may also be retrieved from the subdirectory /kpno/filters/IRplots.
