Various 3D representations of PHOENIX: C o o l G r i d :
CoolGrid: PHOENIX synthetic spectrum grid, [A/H]=0.0 CoolGrid: PHOENIX synthetic spectrum grid, log(g)=2, [A/H]=0.0
Vetted library of observed spectral E distributions Carefully vetted subset of observed spectral energy distributions (SEDs) for Red Giants extracted from the spectrophotometric catalogue of Burnashev (1985, CDS III/126), along with sample means and deviations
C o o l G r i d :
Effective temperature sequence of Non-LTE PHOENIX synthetic spectra for Red Giants of surface gravity of 100 g/cm^2 and solar metallicity. Computed with ACEnet

CoolGrid: PHOENIX atmospheric model grid, log(g)=2, [A/H]=0.0
C o o l G r i d :

Theorist's Hertzsprung-Russell (HR) diagram showing stellar parameter points where Non-LTE stellar atmospheric models and synthetic spectra have been computed, at solar and 1/3 solar metallicity, with PHOENIX. Computed with ACEnet
Periodic Table showing elements and stages treated in Non-LTE in this PHOENIX model grid
Periodic Table of the elements showing which chemical elements and ionization stages, and how many atomic E-levels and transitions, are treated in Non-LTE in this PHOENIX grid. Note: Many of the elements not coloured in are also included, but in LTE.
