Written as a general purpose radiative solver, the code is built around the [HITRAN-2016],
[HITEMP-2010] and [CDSD-4000] databases for molecules in their electronic ground state. Energy
levels are read from tabulated databases or calculated from Dunham developments.
Boltzmann, Treanor, and state specific vibrational distributions can be generated.
Thus far, CO2, CO are featured for non-equilibrium calculations
and all species present in the HITRAN database are featured for equilibrium
To fit experimental spectra, RADIS includes a
LineSurvey tool, an
interface with a look-up
to improve fitting convergence times, and a multi-slab module
with a radiative transfer equation solver to reproduce line-of-sight
experiments. Validation cases against existing
spectral codes and experimental results from various plasma sources are included [RADIS-2018].
Absorption and emission spectra of CO2 and CO for nonequilibrium calculations (see
Calculation of Rovibrational Energies of molecules.
Calculation of equilibrium and nonequilibrium Partition Functions.
Spatially heterogeneous spectra (see see line-of-sight)
A Line Survey tool to identify which lines correspond to a spectral feature.
RADIS does not include, so far:
Line-mixing effects and speed-dependant lineshapes. [HAPI] is a Python alternative that does it.
Collisional-induced absorption (CIA) or emission.
Electronic states other than electronic ground states
Hamiltonian calculations (a private module for CO2 is available on request)
Raman spectra (contribute in #43)
RADIS also features:
High Performances: spectra are calculated up to several orders of magnitude faster than equivalent line-by-line codes.
In-the-browser calculations (no install needed) : see 🌱 RADIS Online.
Automatic download of the latest HITRAN and HITEMP databases with
Automatic testing and continuous integration tools for a reliable Open-source Development.
Use RADIS to:
Quickly compare different line databases: Various line database formats are supported by RADIS, and can be easily switched to be compared. See the list of supported line databases formats:
KNOWN_DBFORMATand refer to the Configuration file on how to use them.
Use the RADIS post-processing methods with the calculation results of another spectral code. For instance, pySpecair, the Python interface to SPECAIR, uses the RADIS
Spectrumobject for post-processing (see How to generate a Spectrum?)
See the Architecture section for an overview of the RADIS calculation steps.
