Description

Class containing receiver temperature and bandpass information of an observation.

Several datasets are included in the Hifi product:

  • Receiver temperature and band pass are in different datasets.

  • In case different LO frequencies are measured the corresponding calibration data is written to different datasets.

The product manages the referencing of the datasets within the product: Receiver temperature have uneven and bandpass have even integer keys (starting with 1).

Within each dataset, possibly several rows are included. Each row is associated with a different observation time. The observation times are used for returning suitably interpolated values that allow to rescale the original source flux data to the physical intensity scale.
