Here you can find several examples of simulations with ARTES. Links are provided to the input files with some easy instructions included.
Limb polarization image from a Rayleigh scattering atmosphere¶
The first example simulates an Stokes I, Q, and U image in backward direction from a Rayleigh scattering atmosphere. The image below is created with the plot_image.py routine in the tools folder. The image shows the Stokes I flux and the vectors denote the direction and degree of polarization. The input files can be downloaded here.
Phase curve from a Rayleigh scattering atmosphere¶
The second example simulates phase curve of a Rayleigh scattering atmosphere. That is, the disk-integrated flux along the different phases (i.e., scattering angles) of the planet. The figures show the Stokes I flux and the fractional polarization. The input files can be downloaded here.
Reflected light spectrum from a Jupiter-like planet¶
The next example simulates a reflected light spectrum at a scattering angles of 90 degrees from a gaseous atmosphere with methane absorption (see Stam et al. 2004). The figures show the spectrum of the normalized Stokes I flux and the degree of polarization (with low spectral resolution). The input files can be downloaded here.
Emission spectrum from a self-luminous planet¶
This example simulates an emission spectrum from a self-luminous gas giant with a clear atmosphere. Molecule opacities and mixing ratios are interpolated from a pre-calculated computed by assuming equilibrium chemistry. The input files can be downloaded here.
