More than 3 years have passed since last update.

(Update Jan. 06, 2018)
Following code mistakenly read [result.txt] not [bisphere.print]. Use v0.4 instead of the code written below

In order to compare results from analytical orientation averaging (T-matrix method) and those from numerical orinetation averaging (ADDA + pySpherepts), both results need to have the same unit (i.e. Qext: Extinction efficiency).

Cext and Qext for bisphere

  • Cext: Extinction cross section
  • Qext: Extinction efficiency

The above two are related to:

Q_{ext} = \frac{C_{ext}}{\pi {r_{eff}}^2} ... (1)

where $r_{eff}$ is the equivalent volume sphere radius (i.e. the radius of the sphere having the same volume with the bisphere).

For a bisphere with composing sphere radii (R1 and R2), $r_{eff}$ can be obtained based on:

\frac{4}{3}\pi r_1^3 + \frac{4}{3}\pi r_2^3 = \frac{4}{3}\pi r_{eff}^3 ... (2-1)
r_{eff}^3 = r_1^3 + r_2^3 ... (2-2)
r_{eff} = \sqrt[3]{r_1^3 + r_2^3} ... (2-3)

code v0.1-v0.3

bisphere.f outputs files as the following (named as result.txt)

This test result was computed on an IBM RISC model 397 workstation

Code to calculate the Qext is as follows:
import numpy as np
import sys

v0.3 Jan. 04, 2018
  - fix bug: calc_qext() uses reff not reff^2
v0.2 Jan. 04, 2018
  - rename to []
    - was []
  - read_param_fromfile() uses convert_to_value()
  - add convert_to_value()
  - add calc_qext()
  - add calc_reff()
v0.1 Jan. 04, 2018
  - add read_param_fromfile()

def convert_to_value(valstr):
    # to avoid:
    # TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for
    # ** or pow(): 'str' and 'int'
    work = valstr.replace("D", "E")
    return np.float64(work)

def read_param_fromfile(akey):
    # 1. find line
    keyline = []
    with open('result.txt') as fd:
        lines = fd.readlines()
        for aline in lines:
            if not akey + "=" in aline:
            keyline += [aline]
    if len(keyline) == 0:
        return None
    # 2. extract value next to the keyword
    found = False
    for elem in keyline[0].split(' '):
        if found:
            return convert_to_value(elem)
        if akey in elem:
            found = True
    return None  # just in case

def calc_reff(r1, r2):
    # volume equivalent sphere radius
    return (r1**3 + r2**3)**(1./3.)

def calc_qext(r1, r2, cext):
    reff = calc_reff(r1, r2)
    denom = np.pi * reff * reff
    if abs(denom < sys.float_info.epsilon):
        return 0.0
    return cext / denom

r1 = read_param_fromfile("R1")
r2 = read_param_fromfile("R2")
cext = read_param_fromfile("CEXT")
reff = calc_reff(r1, r2)

qext = calc_qext(r1, r2, cext)
print("r1, r2, reff, cext")
print("%.3e %.3e %.5e %.3e" % (r1, r2, reff, cext))
print("%.7e" % qext)
