Usage of computeExpectedFWHM

Return to directory of Todd's CASA extensions

Uses scipy.signal to perform the convolution of one (or two) top-hat functions with a Gaussian, and reports the FWHM of the result. See also primaryBeamArcsec to compute the ALMA primary beam for a specific observation, or at a specific frequency, and gjincBeam to compute the restoring beam appropriate for a total power image produced by sdimaging. The inverse of this function is deconvolveDiskFromBeam.

Usage:

au.computeExpectedFWHM(beam_fwhm, disk_diameter_arcsec, disk_diameter_arcsec2=None)

Example:

  CASA <3>: au.computeExpectedFWHM(10.0, 3.0)
  Out[3]: 10.209726
