Relative QE as a function of Incident Angle of the HRC

Below are the current calibration products for the HRC QE as a function of angle.

The most recent products are:

HRC-I at 1.49 keV
Data: Phi=0 degrees
Data: Phi=180 degrees
Link to IPI site
Theta=0 implies that the beam is normal to the surface of the MCP. Phi=0 implies that the top of each pore is to pointed to the left and the bottom is pointed toward the right (looking from the source to the MCP)
