Performance of the JWST.

λ (μm) 0.6−5.0 4.88−28.55
∼2700 ∼3000
Spaxel size 0.1″ 0.196−0.387″
Sensitivity ∼45 μJy (a) ∼70 μJy (b)

Notes. Sensitivities are calculated in order to have a 10σ detection with a 10 k s exposure for MIRI and 13.


At 3.30 μm with a G395H-F290LP disperser-filter configuration (highest spectral resolution).


At 7.70 μm with MRS mode (highest spectral resolution).
