A new option in the command SOLVE FLUX has been implemented which allows flux densities calculations using either POINTINGS and/or CROSS-CORRELATIONS. This is the command:
CLIC\SOLVE FLUX /OUTPUT file NEW[OLD]This command, applied on the CROSS-CORRELATIONS, generates an output file which can directly be read by he language FLUX in ASTRO. It treats the CROSS-CORRELATIONS like POINTINGS assuming that positionnal errors are ``zero''. The scenario is quite similar to the case above:
CLIC\SET RF ON FREQ CLIC\SET PHASE RELATIVE CLIC\SET BAND DSB CLIC\SET SUB L01 TO L06 CLIC\SET SOURCE Phase_Calib RF_CAlib CLIC\SET PROC CORR CLIC\SET FLUX RF_Calib xx.x !see flux reports CLIC\FIND /SCAN x y !After a pointing on RF_Calib CLIC\FIND APPEND /SCAN v w !After a pointing on Phase_Calib CLIC\SOLVE FLUX/OUTPUT flux.fit NEW
When the flux density of the amplitude calibrator is known, update the CLIC calibration procedure (described in the ``Calibration Cookbook'') as follows:
CLIC\SET SOURCE Phase_Calib RF_CAlib CLIC\SET PROC POINT CORR CLIC\SET FLUX Phase_Calib xx.x CLIC\SET FLUX RF_Calib yy.y CLIC\FIND CLIC\STORE FLUX (On all cross-correlations)
Now you can proceed to the standard Amplitude Calibration using cross-correlations on the Amplitude Calibrator (see ``Calibration Cookbook'').
