MIP, times the fraction of the tile through which the electron passes.
A Search for Gamma-Ray Bursts and Pulsars, and the Application of Kalman Filters to Gamma-Ray Reconstruction
Dividing these values by the corresponding single photoelectron ADC counts we obtain on average more than 100 photoelectrons/MIP for a single tower.

The original observing plan was corrected after the Spitzer PV phase, by increasing the depth of the MIPS coverage to account for a reduced efficiency of the 70 µm channel.

For MIPS, scan-mirror-dependent flats were derived from the data and applied to the BCD images.

The absolute flux calibrations are believed to be correct within roughly 10% for the IRAC and for the MIPS 24µm channel data and were confirmed for IRAC by comparison to 2MASS.
Complete Multiwavelength Characterization of Faint Chandra X-ray Sources Seen in the Spitzer Wide-Area IR Extragalactic (SWIRE) Survey
The achieved sensitivities with the SWIRE survey in ELAIS-N1 turned out to be deeper compared with pre-flight expectations in the two short-wavelength IRAC channels and in the MIPS 24 µm one, while performing less well in the other bands.

Such an identification fraction decreases when considering the longer wavelength IRAC channels or MIPS. 59 Chandra ob jects are reliably associated with MIPS 24 µm sources (all of them having IRAC counterparts) and just 1 had a MIPS 70 µm counterpart.

The total signal recorded as a function of the cell threshold applied is shown in Figure 5. A threshold around 0.5 - 0.6 mip seems to be a safe limit in order to suppress noise sufficiently.
