SOHO UltraViolet Coronagraph Spectrometer



The final UVCS FITS files have been submitted to the SOHO Archives (as of Oct. 2013). These include uncalibrated (Level 1) and fully calibrated (Level 2) data for the LYA and OVI spectral channels, and the Visible Light channel. The latest Data Analysis Software (DAS51) program is able to read, display, and calibrate the new files. For more information about how to download and use the DAS51 package with the new UVCS FITS files, click on the "DAS51 RELEASE" link above.

For a short time, the old UVCS FITS files (created prior to 2013) can be found on the SOHO Archive here. These files can be read, displayed, and calibrated with the DAS40.
