SPHERE/IFS reduction pipeline


This repository contains a simple, custom SPHERE/IFS reduction pipeline.

The starting point is the script data_reduction_IFS.sh, which contains most of the documentation and a step by step procedure to reduce an IFS data set. Then the IDL script data_reduction_IFS.pro can be used for the final steps. The pro/ subdirectory contains other IDL routines that are used in the data reduction.

No example data is included, but the ESO archive now contains a lot of public data, which can be used to test the pipeline.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any problem using the reduction pipeline.


If you use this pipeline, please cite the following reference:

The development of the SPHERE instrument has demanded a tremendous effort from many scientists, who have devoted several years of their life to design, build, test and commission the instrument. To recognize this work, we kindly ask you to cite the relevant instrumental papers in your scientific work. The reference papers for SPHERE and the SPHERE/IFS mode are:

We are grateful for your effort, and hope that these tools will contribute to your scientific work and discoveries. Please feel free to report any bug or possible improvement to the author(s).
