Scattered light mapping of protoplanetary disks

Project description

diskmap is a tool for scattered light mapping of protoplanetary disks. The disk surface is parameterized with a power law profile or read from an input file. The projected radius and scattering angle are then calculated at each pixel. From this, a 3D deprojected image and a stellar irradiation corrected image are computed. Also a polarized scattering phase function is extracted and an total intensity phase function is estimated.


Documentation can be found at There is a notebook tutorial that demonstrates the usage. It can also be executed in the interactive environment of Binder.


Please cite Stolker et al. (2016) whenever results from diskmap are used in a publication.
