Scintillometry

Warning

The Scintillometry project has been renamed to baseband-tasks. For reproducing old results, one can checkout the old repository with pip install git+https://github.com/mhvk/baseband-tasks.git@scintillometry#egg=scintillometry.

Welcome to the Scintillometry documentation! Scintillometry is a package for reduction and analysis of radio baseband data, optimized for pulsar scintillometry science.

Simulation

To help simulate and debug reduction processes, Scintillometry allows one to generate fake signals.

Input/output

Most I/O is via raw files read using baseband.open(), but Scintillometry offers options to write out intermediate products as HDF5 files and final products, such as folded profiles, in PSRFITS format.

Helpers

Scintillometry also contains helper modules that assist with calculations and that link it with other software, such as Fourier transform packages or pulsar timing software.
