The instrument Pisces is a near infrared imager installed at the LBTO. The instrument has a Hawaii 1024x1024 array as detector. In the document linked here reports the laboratory and telescope characterization of the array. We give the relevant parameters such as linearity, read noise, gain and distortion field characteristics. We also discuss some effects that has to be taken into a account and future observations will help to guarantee a correct astronomical performance. Those effects are; the cross-talk, persistence and zero points.

The report can be downloaded from here. pisces_characterisation.pdf
