Baseband-tasks

Welcome to the Baseband-tasks documentation! Baseband-tasks is a package for reduction and analysis of radio baseband data.

If you used this package in your research, please cite it via DOI 10.5281/zenodo.3951543.

Note

The package was recently renamed. For reproducing old scripts, see the scintillometry branch.

Simulation

To help simulate and debug reduction processes, Baseband-tasks allows one to generate fake signals.

Input/output

Most I/O is via raw files read using baseband.open(), but Baseband-tasks offers options to write out intermediate products as HDF5 files and final products, such as folded profiles, in PSRFITS format.

Helpers

Baseband-tasks also contains helper modules that assist with calculations and that link it with other software, such as Fourier transform packages or pulsar timing software.
