ISOCAM, the infrared array camera on board of ISO, provided imaging capabilites across a field of view of up to 3 arc-minute diameter. Two optical channels, each with its own 32 pixels X 32 pixels infrared dectector array, were availble. The short wavelength (SW) channel operated between 2.5 and 5.2 microns, and the long wavelength channel (LW) operated between 4 and 17 microns. Each channel also included different magnification lenses to provide a pixel field of view of 1.5, 3.0, 6.0 and 12.0 arcseconds. The filter set comprised 11 SW and 10 LW broad-band filters and 2 circular variable filters (CVF).
The ISOCAM information pages at VILSPA provide several references and links for more information on CAM. You may also wish to read the CAM FAQ for documentation on specific CAM items.
All ISOCAM images are now in public domain and available through the ISO archive.
