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
