Bases: object

An object to hold data from multiple IRIS raster scans.

The Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) small explorer spacecraft provides simultaneous spectra and images of the photosphere, chromosphere, transition region, and corona with 0.33 to 0.4 arcsec spatial resolution, 2-second temporal resolution and 1 km/s velocity resolution over a field-of- view of up to 175 arcsec by 175 arcsec. IRIS consists of a 19-cm UV telescope that feeds a slit-based dual-bandpass imaging spectrograph.

IRIS was launched into a Sun-synchronous orbit on 27 June 2013.


Initializes an IRISSpectrograph object from IRIS level 2 files.
