Results for FUSE H2 fits


This page will summarize the results of our fitting for the H2 for our FUSE program.

The FUSE data were taken in collaboration with Dr. Peter Wannier (JPL), B-G Andersson (JHU), Ed Jenkins (Princeton U.) and Steve Federman (U.Toledo). The data analysis techniques involve FUSE data pipeline ver. 3, processed by B-G Andersson, which combined the channels into a single FITS file.The data were then fitted with a set of splines which were based on the upper percentile points in each of 10 wavelength intervals, and average together to get a best guess to the continuum.

Then the j levels were fitted using two techniques -- first a series of preselected lines were analyzed using curve of growth techniques to determine N and b separately for each j level. Next the entire spectrum was fitted with the j=0 and j=1 levels modelled using the H2 templates from Steve McCandliss.These results were then plotted to determine the kinetic temperatures from j=0,1 and the additional high level j material.


Detailed results from the analysis are below.
