Methods Documentation

get_fixed_table(columns=None)[source]

Convenience function to get the table with html column names made human readable. It returns only the columns identified with the columns keyword. See the source for the defaults.

get_species_ids(restr=None, reflags=0)[source]

Get a dictionary of “species” IDs, where species refers to the molecule name, mass, and chemical composition.

Parameters
restrstr

String to compile into an re, if specified. Searches table for species whose names match

reflagsint

Flags to pass to re.

query_lines(*args, **kwargs)

Queries the service and returns a table object.

The Splatalogue service returns lines with rest frequencies in the range [min_frequency, max_frequency].

Parameters
min_frequencyastropy.units

Minimum frequency (or any spectral() equivalent)

max_frequencyastropy.units

Maximum frequency (or any spectral() equivalent)

bandstr

The observing band. If it is not ‘any’, it overrides minfreq/maxfreq.

top20: str

One of 'comet', 'planet', 'top20', 'ism_hotcore', 'ism_darkcloud', 'ism_diffusecloud'. Overrides chemical_name

chemical_namestr

Name of the chemical to search for. Treated as a regular expression. An empty set (‘’, (), [], {}) will match any species. Examples:

'H2CO' - 13 species have H2CO somewhere in their formula.

'Formaldehyde' - There are 8 isotopologues of Formaldehyde

(e.g., H213CO).

'formaldehyde' - Thioformaldehyde,Cyanoformaldehyde.

'formaldehyde',chem_re_flags=re.I - Formaldehyde,thioformaldehyde,

and Cyanoformaldehyde.

' H2CO ' - Just 1 species, H2CO. The spaces prevent including

others.

parse_chemistry_locallybool

Attempt to determine the species ID #’s locally before sending the query? This will prevent queries that have no matching species. It also performs a more flexible regular expression match to the species IDs. See the examples in get_species_ids

chem_re_flagsint

See the re module

energy_minNone or float

Energy range to include. See energy_type

energy_maxNone or float

Energy range to include. See energy_type

energy_type'el_cm1', 'eu_cm1', 'eu_k', 'el_k'

Type of energy to restrict. L/U for lower/upper state energy, cm/K for inverse cm, i.e. wavenumber, or K for Kelvin

Lower limit on the intensity. See intensity_type

intensity_typeNone or 'sij', 'cdms_jpl', 'aij'

excludelist

Types of lines to exclude. Default is: ('potential', 'atmospheric', 'probable') Can also exclude 'known'. To exclude nothing, use ‘none’, not the python object None, since the latter is meant to indicate ‘leave as default’
