CalibrationUpdateParams Struct Reference

Detailed Description

The type CalibrationUpdateParams contains two time series representing an overall gain factor for the open-loop gain function \(H(f)\) and the sensing function \(C(f)\).

These transfer functions are known to change (by an overall factor) with time, and these two factors can be tracked using the injected calibration lines. The factors are stored in this structure as (very-slowly varying) time series, and are to be used in updating the calibration functions described previously. (The response function can be computed from the open-loop gain and the sensing function. It is simply \(R(f)=[1+H(f)]/C(f)\).) In addition, this structure contains the present epoch and the duration of the data to be calibrated to identify the particular set of factors (from those recorded in the time series) to use.
