WP5 – Beam Deconvolution Map Making



  • Production of beam-deconvolved maps.
  • Integration of the necessary tools with the pipeline.

Description of work

Use the ArtDeco deconvolver code (Keihänen and Reinecke, A&A 548, (2012)), to produce beam-deconvolved maps, where the effective beam is symmetric, and leakage from temperature to polarization due to asymmetric beams has been eliminated. The exact role of the deconvolved maps in the pipeline is yet to be determined. At minimum the are used for cross-check and validation purposes. The mentioned code package involves tools related to forward beam convolution, and associated analysis. These are integrated with the pipeline as need arises.
