Suzaku Public Data

We release the following data to the public, so that researchers can experience the capability of Suzaku.

Important notice:

The data on this Web page are preliminary version. Instrument calibration is being established. Detector background can not be estimated precisely yet at this moment, especially in the HXD data. More work is needed to get accurate solution of the spacecraft attitude. Thus, it is not recommended to draw scientific results based on these data files. Please use these data at your own risk.

The public data are now in the official data archive at ISAS (DARTS) and NASA/GSFC (HEASARC) as part of the official V1.0 pipeline processing. Please download the data from these sites.

List of Targets

Each dataset contains cleaned event files and images of the XIS, cleaned event files, spectra, background of HXD (but not all the datasets), and an auxiliary HK (EHK) file with information on elevation from the earth rim, cut-off rigidity, etc.

Calibration Notes and Response Matrices

Please read the following notes carefully before you use the public data.

Analysis Software etc.

All the data are in the standard FITS format, and hence you can use software like XSELECT, XSPEC, etc. If you don't have them, please download them from the following site.
