ISIS Home Page
ISIS, the Interactive Spectral Interpretation System, is
designed to facilitate the interpretation and analysis of
high resolution X-ray spectra.
It is being developed as a programmable, interactive tool for
studying the physics of X-ray spectrum formation, supporting
measurement and identification of spectral features, and
interaction with a database of atomic structure parameters and
plasma emission models.
One of the most powerful features of ISIS is its
programmability. By writing S-Lang
scripts that use ISIS functions, you can
See the features page for more information.
- Automate repetitive data analysis tasks.
- Take full advantage of your multi-core workstation
with built-in support for parallel processing
- Do array calculations directly in memory, without generating
intermediate FITS files.
- Directly read and write custom FITS binary tables.
- Easily generate custom plots using an interpreted interface
to the PGPLOT subroutine library.
- Control standard command-line software such as FTOOLS and Ciao
- Fit user-defined models coded in S-Lang, C, C++ or Fortran
- Incorporate external C, C++, or Fortran codes into your
ISIS analysis, either by hand or automatically with the
SLIRP vectorizing code generator.
- With the PVM module, distribute
computationally expensive tasks across a network of workstations
(for example, confidence limits
and model evaluation)
