diagrsp

set a 'perfect' response for a spectrum

Diagonalize the current response matrix for ideal response.

Syntax: diagrsp

This command diagonalizes the current response matrix. The response matrix is set so that the channel values are mapped directly into the corresponding energy ranges, based on the channel energies and energy response range of the current response matrix.

This command is very similar to running dummyrsp in mode 1, with two important differences. Unlike dummyrsp, usage of this command requires that an actual response is currently loaded. It takes its energy range and channel binning information from this currently loaded response rather than user input parameters. Secondly, this does not change the effeciency (ie. effective area) as a function of energy stored for the current detector. Invoking this command will simulate a detector with perfect spectral resolution. If you wish to simulate a detector with perfect resolution AND perfect efficiency, use the dummyrsp command.

The previous response matrices can be reimplemented with the response command, with no arguments. Any use of the data and notice commands will replace the dummy diagonal response with the correct set of matrices.
