Following the reformulation of the Athena mission, a new set of X-IFU resources is now available for download at the link below. Check the INSTRUCTIONS.README file for a description of the response files distributed.
Mirror resource products for the baseline mission configuration are available from :https://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/athena/resources-by-esa
You will find information on the instrument efficiency assumed in generating these response files in Barret et al. (Experimental Astronomy, 2023). Please refer to this paper if you intend to use those response files in your work. Thanks !
