A Python noise model for directly imaging exoplanets with a
coronagraph-equipped telescope. The original IDL
code for this coronagraph
model was developed and published by Tyler Robinson and collaborators
(Robinson, Stapelfeldt & Marley
2016). This open-source
Python version has been expanded upon in a few key ways, most notably, the
Star objects used for
reflected light coronagraph noise modeling can now be used for
transmission and emission spectroscopy noise modeling, making this model a
general purpose exoplanet noise model for many different types of observations.
To get started using the
coronagraph noise model, take a look at the
Quickstart tutorial and the
examples. For more details about the full functionality of
the code see the Application Programming Interface (API).
If you use this model in your own research please cite Robinson, Stapelfeldt & Marley (2016) and Lustig-Yaeger, Robinson & Arney (2019).
