pyDARM modeling package for LIGO detector calibration

Project description


PyPI version Conda version License PyPI - Python Version

pyDARM is a python implementation of the LIGO DARM servo loop model. It is used to calibrate the detector digital output into units of differential arm length variations or spacetime strain.

If you need assistance, please review and for detailed installation instructions and contribution guidelines, respectively.


For best results, please install from conda-forge:

conda install -c conda-forge pydarm

On Unix systems, you can also install directly from PyPI:

pip install pydarm

Basic usage

See the web-based documentation and/or examples directory for examples of library usage. You can use pyDARM either from python, ipython, or a jupyter notebook, depending on your preferences.

Command line interface

pyDARM will eventually include a command line interface to help guide through the calibration process. See the command help for more info:

$ python3 -m pydarm --help
