epreject

Abstract:

Task epreject (1) corrects shifts in the energy scale of specific pixels which are due to high-energy particles hitting the EPIC-pn detector during the calculation of the offset map and (2) suppresses the detector noise at low energies by statistically flagging events according to the known noise properties of the lowest energy channels. In the case of timing mode data, epreject also permits the flagging of soft flare events.
