Source Models for X-ray Emission

pyXSIM comes with a number of pre-defined SourceModel types for generating X-ray emission. Source models form the core of pyXSIM. These ``SourceModel``s can be used in three different ways:

  • Generating X-ray emission fields for yt

  • Generating spectra from yt data containers such as spheres, rectangular solids, etc.

  • Generating mock photon lists for use in instrument simulators

There are currently three different types of source models in pyXSIM:
