Hardness Ratios and Quantiles

Hardness ratios and quantiles are calculated from the predicted ACIS-S or ACIS-I aimpoint spectra, as indicated.
Hardness Ratios
Aimpoint HR1 = (H-M)/(H+M) HR2 = (M-S)/(M+S) HR3 = (H-S)/(H+S)
ACIS-S 0.727 0.678 0.941
ACIS-I 0.743 0.808 0.969
S, M, and H represent the predicted total counts in the following passbands:
S: 0.3-0.9 keV
M: 0.9-1.5 keV
H: 1.5-8.0 keV
Quantiles
Aimpoint Quantiles 25 % 25 % Error 50 % 50 % Error 75 % 75 % Error
ACIS-S keV 1.730 0.007 2.708 0.013 4.154 0.014
Q-norm 0.186 0.001 0.313 0.002 0.500 0.002
ACIS-I keV 1.759 0.007 2.898 0.018 4.344 0.016
Q-norm 0.190 0.001 0.337 0.002 0.525 0.002
Normalized quantiles (Q-norm) are defined as:
Qx = (Ex - Elo)/(Ehi - Elo)
Where Elo = 0.3 keV and Ehi = 8.0 keV.
