SMART/AdOpt: Advanced optimal extraction for the Spectroscopic Modeling Analysis and Reduction Tool

Abstract: We present new advances in the spectral extraction of pointlike sources adapted to the Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) on board the Spitzer Space Telescope. For the first time, we created a supersampled point-spread function of the low-resolution modules. We describe how to use the point-spread function to perform optimal extraction of a single source and of multiple sources within the slit. We also examine the case of the optimal extraction of one or several sources with a complex background. The new algorithms are gathered in a plug-in called AdOpt which is part of the SMART data analysis software.
