Welcome to the IACHEC page
The IACHEC aims to provide standards for high energy calibration and supervise cross calibration between different missions. This goal is reached through working groups, where IACHEC members cooperate to define calibration standards and procedures. The scope of these groups is primarily a practical one: a set of data and results (eventually published on refereed journals) will be the outcome of a coordinated and standardized analysis of references sources ("high-energy standard candles"). Past, present and future high-energy mission can use these results as a calibration reference.
