The wavelength and flux calibration, and the in-orbit performance of the Infrared Space Observatory Long-Wavelength Spectrometer (LWS) are described. The LWS calibration is mostly complete and the instrument's performance in orbit is largely as expected before launch. The effects of ionising radiation on the detectors, and the techniques used to minimise them are outlined. The overall sensitivity figures achieved in practice are summarised. The standard processing of LWS data is described.
