Suprime-Cam Filter System
This page describes the Suprime-Cam filters, and the transformations between the Pan-STARRS photometric system and Suprime-Cam.
The transformations were done using (g-i)Pan-STARRS as the reference colour. The Pan-STARRS filter nearest the centre wavelength of the filter was used as the reference magnitude. The transformation was expressed as a 3rd order polynomial with x being g-i, and y being the difference between the Suprime-Cam magnitude and the reference Pan-STARRS magnitude.
The Transmission Function links point to text versions of each filter. These represent the full response of the system, including the atmosphere, the primary mirror, the Suprime-Cam optics, the filter itself and the CCDs.

In the plots below, the left panel shows the filter curves,
together with the relevant Pan-STARRS filter. The black and red
curves show the Pan-STARRS g and i filters. The green curve shows the
reference filter. The right panel shows the transformation
itself. The green and blue dots show the
stars. The magenta curve shows the fit, also indicated in
polynomial form. The vertical lines show the colour range
where this transformation is valid.
