findFWHM

Return to directory of Todd's CASA extensions

Measures the FWHM of the specified (y vs. x) profile by removing half the maximum (or other specified fractional level) and using a spline fit to find the zero crossings. This works best on noise-free data. To operate on images instead, see getfwhm and getfwhm2.

Usage:

au.findFWHM(x, y, level=0.5, s=0)

Example:

CASA <17>: au.findFWHM(range(-4,5,1),[0.1,0.15,0.3,0.7,0.95,0.8,0.4,0.3,0.2])
  Out[17]: 3.3083849908301022
