3D continuum radiative transfer in dusty systems

This page provides a list of useful downloads for SKIRT or PTS. To download a file, right-click or option-click the filename and choose "Save As..."

External resource files

During setup, SKIRT loads built-in SEDs and dust properties from resource data files. Most of these resource files are provided as part of the source code repository, and thus are automatically available after obtaining the SKIRT code. Some resource files, however, are too large for inclusion in the code repository. Instead, they are offered here for download. After downloading, extract the contents of the archive and place the resulting files in a newly created directory called SKIRT/extdat next to the SKIRT/git and SKIRT/release directories.

• PolarizationProperties.tar.gz: optical dust properties used by the PolarizedSilicateGrainComposition and PolarizedGraphiteGrainComposition classes
• FSPSVariableIMFSED.tar.gz: template data for the SED families with variable initial mass function used by the FSPSVariableIMFSEDFamily class
