  • We initially took images of the quasar to locate it, the transmission grating was then places in front of the CCD to obtain its spectrum.
  • As 3c273 is an object with a magnitude of 12.9, many frames were taken to try and increase the signal to noise.
  • A total of 30 4x4 binned frames were taken with an exposure of 120s
 
  • This is a single frame of 3c273 and its surrounding stars,

  • To then calibrate the wavelength, a reference spectrum was used from the star Denebola

  • Deneb_Star.png:
    Deneb_Star.png

  • The zeroth order star was then fit with a Gaussian to find the centre.
\begin{equation} G(x;V) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi \sigma^2}} e^{\frac{-(x - \mu)^2}{2 \sigma^2}} \end{equation}

  • This was repeated for the reference stars Denebola and Aldebaran and 3c273, the data was then sliced so that the centre of the star (Gaussian) was at zero, and plotted,

  • two_Spectrums_Positions.png:
    two_Spectrums_Positions.png

  • To then map the pixel position to the wavelength the reference of a line within Denebola was used,
  • The $H_{\beta}$ line was used which has a wavelength of 486.1 nm,
  • To find the position of the line in Denebola it was fit with a voigtian,
  • The line was found to fall at the pixel value of 73, however the pixel value needed to be converted into mm.
  • The size of a pixel was 0.009 mm however as we used 4x4 binning this was then 0.036 mm.
  • The slit density of the grating was set at 200 however this needs to be checked,
  • The grating equation was used to find the distance of the grating from the CCD,
 \begin{equation} \lambda k n = \sin{(\theta_{m})}, \end{equation}
  • where k is the order = 1, m is the slit density and $\theta_m$ is the angle of diffraction.

  • The angle $\theta_m$ was related to the distance of the grating from the CCD by,
 \begin{equation} \tan{(\theta_m)} = \frac{0.036p}{l}, \end{equation}
  • where p is the pixel position and l is the distance of the grating from the CCD.
  • from these l = 26.9 mm

  • This could then be used to map the wavelength position from the pixel number,
 \begin{equation} \lambda = \frac{1}{n} \sin{\left[ \tan^{-1}{\left( \frac{0.036p}{l}\right)}\right]}, \end{equation}

  • This then gave a plot of

  • The important parameter was the mean, $\mu$, which give the wavelength of the line,
  • This could then be compared to the emitted wavelength of the line to find the redshift: * The redshift was found using:
 \begin{equation} z = \frac{\lambda_{\rm{obs}} - \lambda_{\rm{em}}}{\lambda_{\rm{em}}} \end{equation}
  • The velocity was found using $z = v/c $
  • And the distance with $v = H_{0}d$

  • Our spectrum was attempted to be normalised to the elodie spectrum by fitting an exponential to the elodie spectrum and setting the background of our data to that,

  • The exponential was not a great fit so not sure how else to do this.
