Introduction

What is UDON?

UDON (Universe via Darts ON-line) is the system to quickly analyze science satellite data archived in DARTS (Data Archives and Transmission System) via Internet (HTTP).
With UDON, you can analyze DARTS archival data using your browser without downloading data from DARTS!



What is SUZAKU XIS Quick Plot?

SUZAKU XIS Quick Plot is the web service to display pseudo-color X-ray images taken by SUZAKU XIS(X-ray Imaging Spectrometer), and to extract light curves and spectra for specified regions on the image.


How to display XIS pseudo-color image, extract light curves and spectra ?

First, specify the data range to create spectrum and light curve on the XIS Quick Look image.

  1. Access SUZAKU XIS Quick Look to generate pseudo-color image.
    Steps to generate the pseudo-color image are here.
  2. Specify the region to generate spectrum and light curve.
    Steps to specify the extract region are here.
  3. Click the [Submit] button to display the spectrum and light curve.
    It may take several minutes to extract a spectrum and light curve for bright sources. Please be patient...

You can re-generate spectrum/light curve changing the extraction region.

Screen guide

The initial screen is to display the spectrum . The screen can be switched with the Light curve button and Spectrum button .
On the initial screen, you can see the spectrum in the logarithmic scale.
On this screen you may re-display the spectrum/light curve by changing the scale, but you cannot specify the data extraction region.
If needed, please specify the data extraction region again on the image generation screen of UDON SUZAKU XIS Quick Look.

Errors in drawing figure

If there are any invalid input values when drawing the figure, error messages are displayed.
Please input revised values, and draw the spectrum again.

Input errors in the drawing figure
Sample error messages Explanation
Energy: Upper: -1.0: Specify a non-negative value.
Counts: Lower: 1.o: Specify a non-negative value.
You must input only positive value numerical values both for Lower and Upper.
Energy: Upper: 0.200 is less than or equal to Lower: 1.000.
Counts: Upper: 100 is less than or equal to Lower: 100.
There is input failure that Lower limit = Upper limit, or Lower limit > Upper limit.
The values should be always Lower < Upper.
