optimal_extract(data=None, bin=1, wave=None, ivar=None, trace_limits=None, loglam=True, **kwargs)[source]

Binned optimal extractions by grism with algorithm from Horne 1984

The spatial profile for each beam is the 2D model spectrum generated using its attached direct image thumbnail. The Horne (1984) algorithm is essentially a least-squares fit of the spatial model to the observed 2D spectrum, weighted by the uncertainties.

Along with the optimal extraction, this method also implements an option to extract an effective “aperture” within a specified region above and below the spectral trace.

While the traces may not be directly aligned with the x axis of the 2D spectra, both the optimal and trace extractions extract along y pixels at a given x.

data : ndarray, None

Data array with same dimensions as self.scif_mask (flattened & masked) 2D spectra of all beams. If None, then use self.scif_mask.

bin : bool

Binning factor relative to the grism-dependent resolution values, specified in GRISM_LIMITS.

wave : ndarray, None

Wavelength bin edges. If None, then compute from parameters in GRISM_LIMITS.

ivar : ndarray, None

Inverse variance array with same dimensions as self.scif_mask (flattened & masked) 2D spectra of all beams. If None, then use self.weighted_sigma2_mask.

trace_limits : [float, float] or None

If specified, perform a simple sum in cross-dispersion axis between trace_limits relative to the central pixel of the trace rather than the optimally-weighted sum. Similarly, the output variances are the sum of the input variances in the trace interval.

Note that the trace interval is evaluated with < >, as opposed to <= >=, as the center of the trace is a float rather than an integer pixel index.

loglam : bool

If True and wave not specified (see above), then output wavelength grid is log-spaced.
