Kepler Focal Plane Characteristics

Below is the list of available Focal Plane Characterization Models, with links to the related files and documentation. The files are provided in a variety of formats, including some Matlab-format files, so check the various file extensions.

To download a particular file, click on the appropriate File Name(s) below. Alternatively, ftp to archive.stsci.edu and cd to /pub/kepler/fpc/ (or, using HTTP, click here) to see the complete list. Since the files are too large to download all at once, scripts are available for downloading subsets using WGET or CURL.

Refer to section 2.3.5 "Focal Plane Characterizations" in the Kepler Archive Manual for more information. The table below follows Table 2-7 from the Archive manual. Supplementary information is also listed for some models.
