Paper Abstract

Pyxel is a novel, open-source and Python-based framework designed to host and pipeline any type of models simulating detector effects such as cosmic rays, detector PSF, various noise sources, Charge Transfer Inefficiency or persistence on images produced by CCD or CMOS-based imaging detectors. It is currently under development at the European Space Agency with the goal of release it to the broader detector scientist community. We present here the architecture of the framework, how to integrate new models in it and give a few examples of its current simulation capabilities.
