ABOUT LAMBDA

WMAP

WMAP Effective Frequency Calculator

This tool calculates the effective frequency in GHz of each bandpass for a given antenna temperature spectral index. A correction is applied to account for drift in detector response over the life of the mission. The algorithm and underlying parameters come from Jarosik, etal, 2003, ApJS 145, p413.

Enter the desired indices above; the underlying parameters assume
indices between -3 and 1. Multiple indices may be entered by
separating them with spaces or commas.
