Simulate and Analyze SciSim MOS data

This thread contains a step-by-step recipe to simulate MOS SciSim data and how to procede to analyze this data using SAS.


In this example we will simulate a Raymond-Smith model with a temperature of 0.86 kT(keV), and an abundance of 0.27 in solar units. The column density and the redshift were set to 0. With these values an XSPEC spectrum can be created (following the steps that can be read in Cosmic Simulator guide, chapter 7) and afterwards will be imported into SciSim.
