Scattered light mapping of protoplanetary disks

Project description

Python 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 is then calculated at each pixel. From this, a deprojected image, a stellar irradiation corrected image, and a scattering phase function can be extracted.
