The following document lists the file abstract/PHT_CAL_CFREP306.abs from catalogue VI/111.
A plain copy of the file (without headers/trailers) may be downloaded.

The following program is carried out in order to consolidate the PHT 
calibration of chopped measurements and derive signal losses due to the high 
chopper frequency compared to signal stabilization time.

- observation of standard calibration stars: background and star
staring plus chopped measurements.
We intend to use well known calibration stars with a consolidated spectral
energy distribution. The star is sufficiently bright to be used as
a standard at wavelengths longward of 60 micron. 

Several filters are taken to have several contrast levels between background
and source. A second set of measurements is taken using shorter reset
interval, in order to increase the chopper frequency. To do this we have
to increase the fluxes to the double of its value.
