Le centre d’expertise

Les laboratoires français qui ont participé à la construction de MIRI ont décidé de créer un Centre d’Expertise, basé dans les locaux du Service d’Astrophysique du CEA Saclay. Ce centre d’expertise a pour ambition de conforter le rôle prépondérant du

Detectors

The 5 to 28 micron imager and spectrometer that is slated to fly aboard the JWST in 2018, MIRI (Mid-Infrared Instrument), is equipped with three  flight detector arrays, each 1024 × 1024 pixels, Si:As impurity band conductors, developed by Raytheon

High Level Data Analysis Tools

Another task of MICE is to develop high level data analysis tools to be plugged at the end of the imager branch of the general STScI pipeline. Those tools need to be built from a combination of the instrument design

Pipeline

Data processing tools for MIRI data reduction are being developed by STScI on the basis of algorithms provided by the Performance Tests and Calibration Team (PTCT) and by individual institutions belonging to the European Consortium ( EC). Inside the EC

Proposal Tools

The tools to craft a JWST proposal include: The Exposure Time Calculator (ETC): it calculates the detailed performance of the observatory by modeling astronomical scenes consisting of single or multiple point and extended sources. It offers full support for all
