If new calibration has been applied to the event file, the grating spectrum should be re-extracted as well. It is then possible to build grating response files (gARF, gRMF) in order to model and fit the data.

Problems with the Zero Order:
- LETG/HRC-S Grating Spectra
- Applying Customized Background Regions to LETG/HRC-S Observations
- Grating Spectra for Multiple Sources - HRC
- Higher-order Responses for HRC-S/LETG Spectra
- HRC Grating RMFs
- LETG/HRC-S Grating ARFs
- Grouping a Grating Spectrum
- The calibration page Optimized LETG/HRC-S Extraction Region and Recalibrated EEFRACs contains information needed to use the detilt, dewiggle, and symmetrize scripts.
