An ARF for Micro-X and Puppis Simulation


The plot at left shows the Puppis A BEK vpshock model (below) folded through the Micro-X effective area file:
microx.arf (FITS)
for a 300 second exposure. A line broadening of 4.5 eV FWHM is included as well. The plot was made with the isis script analysis_microx_sim.sl .

The arf file was created from the text effective area file, EffectiveArea_081128.txt, using a hacked script from dph: dph_microx_mk_arf.sl .

( FYI, these files are in MKI directory: /nfs/spectra/d1/Science/Puppis/e2d_081111/ )
