Information on Service 'TheoSSA - Theoretical Stellar Spectra Access'

[Use this service from your browser]

Further access options are discussed below

TheoSSA provides spectral energy distributions based on model atmosphere calculations. Currently, we serve results obtained using the Tübingen NLTE Model Atmosphere Package (TMAP) for hot compact stars.

For a list of all services and tables belonging to this service's resource, see Information on resource 'TheoSSA - Theoretical Stellar Spectra Access'

Service Documentation

SSA services are particularly well suited for programmatic access. Here is a sample program using pyVO and astropy to plot a T_eff grid:

from astropy.table import Table
import pyvo
import numpy as np

TEFF_SCALER = 200.


def _wiggle(val):
  """returns a +/- 2% range for the float val in SSAP syntax.
  """
  if val is not None:
    return "%s/%s"%(val*0.98, val*1.02)


def discover_spectra(teff=None, logg=None, **elements):
  """returns a pyvo result for spectra with teff, logg, and given abundances.

  Each argument, when given, must be a float.  The function "wiggles"
  them by +/- 10%.
  """
  pars = {"format": "votable"}
  pars["t_eff"] = _wiggle(teff)
  pars["log_g"] = _wiggle(logg)
  for el, abundance in elements.items():
    pars["w_%s"%el] = _wiggle(abundance)

  svc = pyvo.dal.SSAService("http://dc.g-vo.org/theossa/q/ssa/ssap.xml")
  return svc.create_query(**pars).execute()


def plot_spectrum(ax, spectrum):
  """plots spectrum (an SSA result from theossa) into fig, offset by teff,
  into the matplotlib axes ax.
  """
  teff = spectrum.get("t_eff")
  t = Table.read(spectrum.acref)
  ax.plot(t["spectral"], np.log(t["flux"])+teff/TEFF_SCALER)
  ax.text(max(t["spectral"]), teff/TEFF_SCALER, str(teff),
    horizontalalignment="right")


def make_plot(spectra):
  """arranges spectra in a plot, showing evolution by teff.
  """
  from matplotlib import pyplot
  fig = pyplot.figure(figsize=(4,6))
  ax = fig.add_axes([0,0,1,1])

      for sp in spectra:
      plot_spectrum(ax, sp)

      with open("combined.pdf", "wb") as f:
      pyplot.savefig(f, format="pdf")


if __name__=="__main__":
  specs = discover_spectra(logg=6, C=0.0034, He=0.284, H=0.715)
