Exponential cutoff power law spectral model used for 3FGL

This model parametrises a cutoff power law spectrum used for 3FGL.

It is defined by the following equation:

\[\phi(E) = \phi_0 \cdot \left(\frac{E}{E_0}\right)^{-\Gamma} \exp \left( \frac{E_0 - E}{E_{C}} \right)\]

Example plot

Here is an example plot of the model:

from astropy import units as u
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from gammapy.modeling.models import ExpCutoffPowerLaw3FGLSpectralModel, Models, SkyModel

energy_bounds = [0.1, 100] * u.TeV
model = ExpCutoffPowerLaw3FGLSpectralModel(
    index=2.3 * u.Unit(""),
    amplitude=4 / u.cm ** 2 / u.s / u.TeV,
    reference=1 * u.TeV,
    ecut=10 * u.TeV,
)
model.plot(energy_bounds)
plt.grid(which="both")
plot exp cutoff powerlaw 3fgl

YAML representation

Here is an example YAML file using the model:

model = SkyModel(spectral_model=model, name="exp-cutoff-power-law-3fgl-model")
models = Models([model])

print(models.to_yaml())
