XIMPOL: a new x-ray polarimetry observation-simulation and analysis framework
UV, X-Ray, and Gamma-Ray Space Instrumentation for Astronomy XX
We present a new simulation framework, based on the python programming language and specifically developed for X-ray polarimetric applications, called XIMPOL. Starting from an arbitrary source model (including morphological, temporal, spectral and polarimetric informations), XIMPOL uses the response functions of the detector under study to produce fast and realistic observationsimulations. A Chandra-to-XIMPOL converter is also available within the framework, designed to convert a real Chandradoi:10.1117/12.2273425 fatcat:k6i4qb5qlrhvrl6zsc7pwvnvtq
