Abstract:

The wavelength and flux calibration, and the in orbit performance of the Infrared Space Observatory Long-Wavelength Spectrometer LWS are described. The LWS calibration is mostly complete and the instruments performance in orbit is largely as expected before launch. The effects of ionizing radiation on the detectors, and the techniques used to minimize them are outlined. The overall sensitivity figures achieved in practice are summarized. The standard processing of LWS data is described.
