Generation from In-Orbit Data

Many calibration observations of celestial targets have been used to measure the response function of the MOS detectors as a function of observing date. The response has evolved, particularly at low-energies, and is currently modelled by an empirical formula designed to give consistent results between the EPIC-pn, EPIC-MOS and RGS cameras.
