[ascl:2312.028] SAGE: Stellar Activity Grid for Exoplanets

SAGE corrects the time-dependent impact of stellar activity on transmission spectra. It uses a pixelation approach to model the stellar surface with spots and faculae, while accounting for limb-darkening and rotational line-broadening. The code can be used to evaluate stellar contamination for F to M-type hosts, test various spot sizes and locations, and quantify the impact of limb-darkening. SAGE can also retrieve the properties and distribution of active regions on the stellar surface from photometric monitoring, and connect the photometric variability to the stellar contamination of transmission spectra.
