emenergy (emenergy-8.9) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]


emenergy is the task which prepares the spectral analysis of EPIC-MOS data. It adds a quality flag to all events, prepares the (optical) background map, computes the best PHA energy from all information available, corrects for charge transfer losses and translates it into PI. The CCDBKG subroutine cannot be applied to slew data.

emenergy calls (in order) the following subroutines, all of which can be individually switched off:
