Keck Instrument Technical Notes


The instrument group needs a repository of collected knowledge. Eventually, we'll want an index of KITNs on this webpage that is sortable by KITN number, instrument, and title. Until JLyke can figure out how to do this, we'll deal with a static table.

When you wish to add a new KITN, please add its number to the index before you start so that we don't have competing document numbers. KITNs will need to be saved here in both .doc and .pdf format. Please name your documents KITNxxxx.doc and KITNxxxx.pdf. This will aid organization.

There are 3 templates from which to choose, depending upon what kind of KITN you want on your KITN. When you open the template in Word, change the number from "xxxx" to your number by: View -> Headers and Footers. The header should then be editable.
Template 1 (.doc) Template 2 (.doc) Template 3 (.doc)
