SPIRE Photometer Beam Profiles  
Line: 13 to 13  
The values in the first line were measured from a very finely sampled observation of Neptune as outlined below. Note that these are only accurate for a source of the same spectral shape. Since SPIRE flux densities for point sources are conventionally quoted for the reference wavelengths 250, 350, and 500 microns, assuming a source spectrum rising proportionally to wavelength (nu*F_nu=const.), we can adopt the same convention for (infinitely) extended sources. In this case the values in the second line apply. For sources of other colors a correction will have to be applied. The radial model beam profile is described in Griffin et al. 2013 and the data files given below can be used to calculate such beam profiles. This analysis showed that the static part of the model came from noise due to residual background galaxies and is not needed anymore. Rather the data show a well described falloff with radius that is well described by a powerlaw. This fit is used to extrapolate beyond the measured radius.
