Simulate and Analyze SciSim RGS data

This thread contains a step-by-step recipe to simulate RGS data with SciSim and to proceed analyzing the data using SAS.

 

In this example we 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 are 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 imported into SciSim.
