WIMpy_NREFT code (also known as just
WIMpy) allows you to calculate Dark Matter-Nucleus scattering rates in the framework of NREFT (see e.g. arXiv:1203.3542). The code is written in python, with more detailed documentation to appear soon.
The code currently supports operators to , as well as millicharged and magnetic dipole Dark Matter. The code can be used to generate spectra for Xenon, Argon, Carbon, Germanium, Iodine and Fluorine targets.
WIMpy_NREFT now includes functionality to calculate directional recoil spectra, as well as signals from coherent neutrino-nucleus scattering (including fluxes from the Sun, atmosphere and diffuse supernovae).

You can install
pip install git+https://github.com/bradkav/WIMpy_NREFT
Most of the relevant routines are contained in the module
DMUtils.py. Load with
from WIMpy import DMUtils as DMU
For how to use the routines, there are a number of examples in the
NREFT_example.ipynb, which contains examples of how to use the different parts of the code, including calculating a range of spectra.
Spectra.ipynb, which can be used to generate plots of spectra for all NREFT operators and a range of experiments.
Directional.ipynb, which demonstrates how to calculate directional recoil spectra, as well as how to transform into different coordinate systems and account for time-integrated directionality.
Neutrinos.ipynb, which shows how to calculate neutrino-nucleus scattering spectra.
More detailed documentation should be coming soon...
Notes + Caveats
The code is still a work in progress, so be aware of the following:
