Functions¶

This function reimplements calc_cloud_opas from fort_spec.f90. For some reason 
 class petitRADTRANS.radtrans.Radtrans(line_species=None, rayleigh_species=None, cloud_species=None, continuum_opacities=None, wlen_bords_micron=None, mode='ck', test_ck_shuffle_comp=False, do_scat_emis=False, lbl_opacity_sampling=None, pressures=None, temperatures=None, stellar_intensity=None, geometry='dayside_ave', mu_star=1.0, semimajoraxis=None, hack_cloud_photospheric_tau=None, path_input_data=os.environ.get('pRT_input_data_path'), use_detailed_line_absorber_names=False)¶
Bases:
petitRADTRANS._read_opacities.ReadOpacities
Class defining objects for carrying out spectral calculations for a given set of opacities
 Args:
 line_species (Optional):
list of strings, denoting which line absorber species to include.
 rayleigh_species (Optional):
list of strings, denoting which Rayleigh scattering species to include.
 cloud_species (Optional):
list of strings, denoting which cloud opacity species to include.
 continuum_opacities (Optional):
list of strings, denoting which continuum absorber species to include.
 wlen_bords_micron (Optional):
list containing left and right border of wavelength region to be considered, in micron. If nothing else is specified, it will be equal to
[0.05, 300]
, hence using the full petitRADTRANS wavelength range (0.11 to 250 microns for'ck'
mode, 0.3 to 30 microns for the'lbl'
mode). The larger the range the longer the computation time. mode (Optional[string]):
if equal to
'ck'
: use lowresolution mode, at \(\\lambda/\\Delta \\lambda = 1000\), with the correlatedk assumption. if equal to'lbl'
: use highresolution mode, at \(\\lambda/\\Delta \\lambda = 10^6\), with a linebyline treatment. do_scat_emis (Optional[bool]):
Will be
False
by default. IfTrue
scattering will be included in the emission spectral calculations. Note that this increases the runtime of pRT! lbl_opacity_sampling (Optional[int]):
Will be
None
by default. If integer positive value, and ifmode == 'lbl'
isTrue
, then this will only consider every lbl_opacity_samplingnth point of the highresolution opacities. This may be desired in the case where mediumresolution spectra are required with a \(\\lambda/\\Delta \\lambda > 1000\), but much smaller than \(10^6\), which is the resolution of thelbl
mode. In this case it may make sense to carry out the calculations with lbl_opacity_sampling = 10, for example, and then rebinning to the final desired resolution: this may save time! The user should verify whether this leads to solutions which are identical to the rebinned results of the fiducial \(10^6\) resolution. If not, this parameter must not be used. use_detailed_line_absorber_names (Optional[bool]):
False by default. If True, the keywords of the mass fraction dictionary handed to calc_flux() and calc_transm() must match the line absorber names exactly, including line list and resolution flags. For example, if “H2O_Exomol_R_10” is loaded, the mass fraction keyword has to be “H2O_Exomol_R_10”, instead of the nominal “H2O”.
