2 Hinode Workshop in China2 2007/12/08-10 Contents Optical Performance (Telescope Temperature) Mechanics CCD Performance Effect of Radiation Environment Unexpected Things  The temperature in the front part of XRT.  The motion of one of the filter wheel (FW1).  The change of the XRT response.

3 Hinode Workshop in China3 2007/12/08-10 Optical Performance: PSF From the observation of a Mercury transit, FWHM = 1.0 ± 0.12 arcsec (Weber et al. 2007, PASJ). This is statistically consistent with the pre-launch measurement. FWHM 〜 0.8 arcsec. Mercury

4 Hinode Workshop in China4 2007/12/08-10 Optical Performance: Scattered Lights “Al/Mesh” “Ti/Poly” Non-occulted data Occulted data Eclipse observations suggest the scattered lights, which have not yet parameterized. For the analysis of faint objects, especially in a coronal hole and above the limb, we have to pay a great attention to the scattered lights. Kano et al. 2008

7 Hinode Workshop in China7 2007/12/08-10 Mechanism XRT has 2 filter wheels, 2 shutters, and 1 focusing motor. Except for 1 filter wheel (FW1), all mechanism works well. Latter I will talk about FW1.

13 2007/12/08-10Hinode Workshop in China 13 Unexpected Things

14 Hinode Workshop in China /12/08-10 There are some unexpected things. The temperature in the front part of XRT.  Higher than our expectation, but no serious problem for XRT operations and observations. FW1 accidentally stopped in November,  But it returned to normal operations since May 10 th, The change of the XRT response.  We have the data to calibrate the XRT response.  XRT team will deriver the database of the XRT response through SSWDB in near future.
