At a Lorentz Centre meeting at Leiden during 8-12 August 2016, a set of atomic code tests were created for collision equilibrium plasmas. This directory contains the results of tests 1, 2, 3 and 6 as derived with CHIANTI (the other tests are not relevant).
The IDL routines are available in the CHIANTI IDL directory,
in subdirectory utilities/lorentz.
Test 1 - charge state distributions
Computes charge state distributions at three different temperatures.
Test 2 - radiative power
Computes the total radiative losses (lines + continuum) from each element.
IDL> lorentz_test_2_power, loss_rate
Test 3 - strong lines
Computes the 100 strongest lines from three isothermal plasmas.
Test 7 - line formation
Computes the contributions of different atomic processes to a set of key X-ray lines. The list of lines is given in the document that describes the tests (see above).
