Calibrating

  • During the week, correct grating position was found and grating was stuck down
  • Sigma of the Gaussian fit to the peak as a function of the lens-camera distance:
    sigma_Distance_Hyperbole.png

  • Hyperbolic function used:
 \begin{equation} y = b^2 \sqrt{\frac{x - \mu}{a^2} - 1} \end{equation}
  • Best guess values used are a = 1, b = 4, μ = 21
  • Lowest value of σ is 2.72

  • Sigma of the Gaussian fit to the peak as a function of the camera rotation:
    sigma_Rotation_Cosine.png
  • Cosine function used:
 \begin{equation} y = d \times \cos(x + \mu) + \sigma_{\rm{min}} \end{equation}
  • Best guess values used are a = 1, b = 4, μ = 1
  • Lowest value of σ is 3.49
Vega spectrum peak finder

  • Cutoff value = 0.02
  • Size of xrange has to be greater than 2
  • The length of adjacent value considered = 3

  • Plot of normalised Vega spectrum with its normalised second derivative:
