Overview: The Spitzer IRS Custom Extraction (SPICE) software is a JAVA-based tool to interactively extract Spitzer Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) spectra.

The Spitzer IRS Custom Extraction (SPICE) software is a JAVA-based tool to interactively extract Spitzer Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) spectra.

SPICE is designed to allow the user to:

  • visualize the extraction performed by the IRS pipeline

  • examine features at known wavelengths in the 2D dispersed image

  • extract multiple targets along the slit

  • extract local sky spectra along the slit

  • re-extract target spectra after sky subtraction on the 2D dispersed image

  • re-extract target spectra after interpolation over e.g. bad pixels

  • extract spectra from multiple frames in Batch Mode
