Description

p3d is a general data-reduction tool for use with fiber-fed integral-field spectrographs (IFSs). The tool is built about the proprietary software IDL (EXELIS; see http://www.exelisvis.com), but does not require any license when it is used as it is.

Features

  • p3d works on all platforms that are supported by IDL.
  • p3d can be used with full functionality without an IDL license.
  • Optimal extraction, including correction for so-called cross-talk.
  • Flux calibration can be done both interactively and non interactively.
  • Can correct data for differential atmospheric refraction.
  • Single images are cleaned of cosmic-ray hits - using a new IFS-specific approach.
  • Time-consuming tasks are implemented in compiled C, using OpenMP.
  • Information on all operations are (optionally) saved to a log file.
  • p3d currently supports thirteen IFUs - more can be added on request.
  • Calar Alto 3.5m / PMAS (LARR+PPAK, old and new CCD).
  • McDonald Observatory 2.7m / VIRUS-P (fiber bundles 1,2, and VP2.7).
  • McDonald Observatory 2.7m / VIRUS-W.
  • AAT 3.9m / AAOMEGA/SAMI (basic support, but required fiber position tables are missing)
  • AAT 3.9m / AAOMEGA/SPIRAL (blue and red arms).
  • ESO VLT/UT3 / VIMOS (all HR and MR-modes, old and new configuration).
  • ESO VLT/UT2 / FLAMES (the ARGUS IFU, and the two mini-IFUs).
  • BTA 6m / MPFS (the new CCD).
  • WHT 4m / INTEGRAL/SB1-3 (both the old and the new CCDs).
  • Gemini North and South 8m / GMOS-N and GMOS-S (one-slit modes).
  • ERA2 / An AIP integral-field spectrograph for life sciences.
  • Allows use of either a master-bias or prescan and overscan bias regions.
  • Output data cubes (ver. >=2.2) can be viewed with the CASA viewer.
  • The spectrum viewer can be used with all output of the "CALIFA" data-reduction pipeline.
  • All files have the prefix p3d_, i.e. no interference with other IDL programs.
