blackStar

class ChiantiPy.tools.sources.blackStar(temperature, radius)[source] [edit on github]

Bases: object

Calculate blackbody radiation

Parameters:

temperature : ndarray

Temperature in Kelvin

radius : ndarray

Stellar radius in cm

Attributes

Temperature (ndarray) Temperature in Kelvin
Radius (ndarray) Stellar radius in cm
Incident (ndarray) Blackbody photon distribution

Methods Summary

incident(distance, energy) Calculate photon distribution times the visible cross-sectional area.

Methods Documentation

incident(distance, energy)[source] [edit on github]

Calculate photon distribution times the visible cross-sectional area.

Parameters:

distance : ndarray

Distance to the stellar object in cm

energy : ndarray

Energy range in erg

Notes

This function returns the photon distribution instead of the distribution times the cross-sectional area. Is this correct? Why is the incident photon distribution calculated at all?
