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 -0.246 -0.071 -0.312
ACIS-I -0.196 0.256 0.063
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 0.708 7.292 1.000 0.000 1.424 0.000
Q-norm 0.053 0.947 0.091 0.000 0.146 0.000
ACIS-I keV 0.898 0.004 1.190 6.810 1.599 0.007
Q-norm 0.078 0.001 0.116 0.884 0.169 0.001
Normalized quantiles (Q-norm) are defined as:
Qx = (Ex - Elo)/(Ehi - Elo)
Where Elo = 0.3 keV and Ehi = 8.0 keV.
