MINOS is a 735$\unit{km}$ long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment from
Fermilab (IL, USA) to the Soudan mine (MN, USA). The experiment measures $%
\nu _{\mu }$ a various\ energies from Fermilab's NuMI beam. The near and far
detectors are almost identical steel--scintillator sandwich tracking
calorimeters. MINOS has been running in atmospheric mode since 2003 and in
beam mode since February 2005. MINOS is designed to make precision
measurements of the neutrino oscillation parameters in the atmospheric
sector whilst also being able to improve the current limit on reactor sector
oscillations. Several stages of calibration have to be performed to achieve
