Sample LWS Cosmic Ray Glitches

In the plots below we see LWS detectors LW4 and LW5 scanned across their range (140 - 180um and 160 - 197um). This is a grating scan and the encoder steps are given at the bottom of the plots. There is a continuum + dark current level present at a level of 100 e-/sec, and glitches to 1200 to 500 e-/sec in the two detectors. The encoder steps represent the some sequence in time for the two detectors so one can see the hits in adjacent detectors are in general not correlated.
