Projects / coolcurve_create


ccurve_create.tcl is a TCL script (plus associated csh scripts) that makes it is possible to calculate cooling curves (plasma emissivities, in units of erg cm^3 s^-1) as a function of plasma temperature using the hot plasma codes available in the XSPEC spectral fitting program. Element-or-line-specific cooling functions can also be created. These can be used in hydrodynamical simulations to assess the total cooling rate, calculate the luminosity in a specific wavelength/energy range, or more generally to calculate X-ray or UV line diagnostics.
