SMART, the "Spectroscopic Modeling Analysis and Reduction Tool," is a software package to reduce and analyze data from the Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) on the Spitzer Space Telescope. Updates/downloads
are provided on this web page from the development team at Cornell University.
"I just love the new version and the optimal extraction -- great job, thanks a lot!" --
"I used AdOpt [Advanced Optimal Extraction] a few weekends ago to extract a spectrum and it is amazing! Everyone
should try it!" --
[Re: super-resolution extraction] "I didn't know that (super-resolution) was going into this version! B and I have
always wanted to have all the sampling back..." --
- New version Download SMART package v8.2.8 (Jan 30, 2014). Note that if you changed the location of your user parameter directory (smart_bin) for previous installations (located by default in the smart/ directory), you should remove it before running the new version. Full instructions about installing SMART on your system are given in the Installation Guide. The complete list of changes is documented here.
We request that authors using data from the IRS and/or the SMART software include the following citations in their papers :
) is the atlas of all Spitzer/IRS spectra, check it out! The latest version of CASSIS (v6; released February 26, 2014) uses SMART 8.2.8. Spectra of isolated sources in CASSIS do not require more processing and are ready for publication. More complex sources (blended, complex background, e.g., supernova in a galaxy) can be handled by the optimal extraction tool AdOpt?
