CASSIS provides both low- and high-resolution spectra, coming from two different pipelines and described in two different publications. We kindly ask users to use the following reference(s) for citations.
The chief publication describing the preparation and methodology of the CASSIS low-resolution atlas is CASSIS: The Cornell Atlas of Spitzer/IRS Sources, published in the Astrophysical Journal Supplement.
The above publication presents the low-resolution pipeline in its first public version "LR4". New versions were released since, please read this document for details.
The publication describing the high-resolution pipeline is CASSIS: The Cornell Atlas of Spitzer/Infrared Spectrograph Sources. II. High-resolution Observations, published in the Astrophysical Journal Supplement.
The above publication presents the high-resolution pipeline in its first publica version "HR1".
How to acknowledge CASSIS and the seminal Spitzer/IRS papers:
The CASSIS atlas is presented in two publications. We ask users to refer to the relevant paper (or the two papers if appropriate) in their studies:
"CASSIS: The Cornell Atlas of Spitzer/IRS Sources", Lebouteiller, V., Barry, D.J., Spoon, H.W.W., Bernard-Salas, J., Sloan, G.C., Houck, J.R., & Weedman, D., 2011, ApJS, 196, 8
"CASSIS: The Cornell Atlas of Spitzer/IRS Sources. II. High-resolution Observations", Lebouteiller, V., Barry, D.J., Goes, C., Sloan, G.C., Spoon, H.W.W., Weedman, D.W., Bernard-Salas, J., Houck, J.R., 2015, ApJS, 218, 21
The Combined Atlas of Sources with Spitzer IRS Spectra (CASSIS) is a product of the IRS instrument team, supported by NASA and JPL.
- The primary paper for Spitzer: Werner et al. 2004.
- The primary paper for the IRS instrument: Houck et al. 2004.
- For studies using the SMART software: Lebouteiller et al. 2010 and Higdon et al. 2004.
