# blackStar¶

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

Bases: object

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?
