The documents that follow describe and are references for the
DICE project which
intend to perform an instrumental calibration of CFHT/Megacam
with a direct
illumination of the primary mirror using LEDs.
The proposed concept is described in the paper: Direct Illumination Led
Calibration for type Ia Supernova photometry ("Conceptual design")
An implementation is proposed for CFHT/megacam in the proposed SNDICE:
A SN Direct Illumination Calibration Experiment ("Draft proposal")
For reference the actual calibration procedure used for SNLS is
described in "Photometric Calibration of the Supernova Legacy Survey
which was presented by Nicolas Regnault at the Blankenberg conference
"Calibration and Standardization" in May 2006.
Slides of several talks prepared for a project group review which took
place Nov 13, 2006 are also available
for reference. The first talk was a general description of the project
by Kyan Schahmaneche. The proposed electronic and mechanical setups
were described as well as expected schedule, cost and manpower. Ideas
for operation and calibration data analysis were also briefly discussed
