This is an X-ray spectral model that describes the reprocessing of X-rays in a torus-shaped medium. This e-torus model is based on Ikeda et al. 2009. The intrinsic spectrum of the AGN is described by a power law with an high-energy exponential cut-off. This model was used in Ikeda et al. (2009), Awaki et al. (2009).
There are two table model files available: e-torus_20161121_2500M.fits and e-torus_hc_20161121_2500M.fits These files were updated on 11/28/16 to give the correct result when calculating the model on energies beyond those tabulated in the original files.
A brief explanation of the model and illustrations of its use are contained in torus_model_v02a.pdf.
The table model has five parameters in e-torus_20161121_2500M.fits:
The table model has five parameters in e-torus_hc_20161121_2500M.fits:
These are multiplicative table models and the PhoIn or E_Cut parameters must be linked to those in the cut-off power-law model to which the multiplicative model is applied.

The HEASARC welcomes your participation in a brief survey to capture how users access and utilize HEASARC data, software, and services. The outcome(s) of this survey will be used to guide, prioritize, and plan our activities and development in the coming years. It contains 20 questions, generally takes just a few minutes to complete, and your answers will remain totally anonymous. The survey is open until Dec 18, 2023. We thank you in advance for your valuable feedback.
