psrfix - Process and copy a pulsar dataset.  

PERSON RESPONSIBLE

CATEGORIES

uv analysis  

DESCRIPTION

PSRFIX performs de-dispersion, bin averaging/differencing and ephemeris correction on an ATCA dataset observed in pulsar bin mode.  

PARAMETERS

vis
The name of the input uv data sets. Several can be given. No default.
select
The normal uv selection commands. The default is copy everything. See the help on "select" for more information.
dm
This gives up to three numbers, being the pulsar dispersion measure, the pulsar period (in seconds) and the frequency to de-disperse to (in GHz). The default is a dispersion measure of 0, and to de-disperse to the average frequency of the first record. If de-dispersing, a pulsar period must be given. De-dispersion is done including fractional bin shifts.
binsl
Bin selection input. It takes an input string of the form
               (1,2,4),(4,5,-6),(7,8)
The output will be three bins, the first will contain the sum of the bins 1,2 and 4, the next will contain the sum of 4 and 5 minus 6, and the last will contain the sum of 7 and 8. It is possible to have any combinations of bins. However, the number of output bins must be less than or equal to the number of input bins.

NOTE: This simply adds and differences multiple bins. It does NOT perform any normalization of the result. For example, if you sum three bins of equal value, you will get three times the flux of each bin in the output

out
The name of the output uv data set. No default.
options
Extra processing options. Several can be given, separated by commas. Minimum match is supported.
  nocal   This option suppresses antenna gain calibration. The
          default behaviour is to apply antenna calibration.
  nopol   This option suppresses polarisation calibration. The
          default behaviour is to apply polarisation calibration.
  nopass  This option suppresses bandpass calibration. The
          default behaviour is to apply bandpass calibration.
