Description

The ami_normalize step is one of the AMI-specific steps in the ami sub-package and is used in Stage 3 calwebb_ami3 processing. It provides normalization of LG processing results for a science target using LG results of a reference PSF target. The algorithm subtracts the PSF target closure phases from the science target closure phases and divides the science target fringe amplitudes by the PSF target fringe amplitudes.

Arguments

The ami_normalize step does not have any step-specific arguments.

Inputs

LG model parameters

Data model

AmiLgModel

File suffix

_amiavg and _psf-amiavg

The ami_normalize step takes two inputs: the first is the LG results for a science target and the second is the LG results for the PSF target. These should be the “_amiavg” and “_psf-amiavg” products resulting from the ami_average step. The inputs can be in the form of file names or AmiLgModel data models.

Outputs

Normalized LG model parameters

Data model

AmiLgModel

File suffix

_aminorm

The output is a new LG product for the science target in which the closure phases and fringe amplitudes have been normalized using the PSF target closure phases and fringe amplitudes. The remaining components of the science target data model are left unchanged. The output file name syntax is source-based, using the product name specified in the input ASN file and having a product type of “_aminorm”, e.g. “jw87600-a3001_t001_niriss_f480m-nrm_aminorm.fits.”

Reference Files

The ami_normalize step does not use any reference files.
