HXD-PIN Background for V2.x and V3.0 Data


There are two different non X-ray background (NXB) models of HXD-PIN;

The differences between two model are described in the "tuned" background page, and suzakumemo (2008-03).

As noted in the ABC guide and Suzaku first step guid (Japanese), one should understand the cross calibration issue between the XIS and the HXD-PIN described in the Suzaku Documents page , when analyzing the data.
As of 2008.08.29, you shall refer to "Recent update of the XRT response: III. Effective Area" (suzakumemo-2008-06) . On the original rev 2.x XIS calibration, you shall refer to "Relative normalization of XIS0-3 and PIN in revision 2 data" (suzakumemo-2007-11) .
