Infrared Detectors

Within the ESO Instrumentation Division the Infrared Detectors Department is in charge of developing, installing and monitoring of the infrared detector systems. Until now most of the infrared instruments operational at ESO sites in Chile have used the ESO standard data-acquisition system IRACE. In the future the NGC, the New General detector Control system, will be used as the ESO's standard infrared and optical detector controllers.
