Abstract

The focus of the present study is to produce a cross calibration factor for Hinode's X-Ray Telescope (XRT) and Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrometer (EIS) instruments by using observations of X-ray bright points. Material in the center of several bright points will be analyzed using data from EIS, and these results will be applied to concurrent XRT data to generate a relative response ratio between the two instruments. A secondary purpose is to investigate the thermal characteristics of bright points themselves. The differential emission measure curves produced from the EIS observations will themselves be valuable information about these coronal phenomena.
