Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT)

Product Name
CMB Source Templates 2008 Data
Mission
ACT

Description

The angular power spectra shape due to clustered IR point sources as predicted by two different models (named Src-1, Src-2) are supplied for the 148 GHZ ACT frequency.

They are both normalized to unity at l=3000. The spectra are supplied in a text file with two columns:

There are two files
-'cl_corr_148_src1.dat' is the spectral shape predicted by Src-1
-'cl_corr_148_src2.dat' is the spectral shape predicted by Src-2
