Name: time_constant_typeVersion Id:
Description: time_constant_type distinguishes between three types of instrumental time constant assumed in a square-well model. This attribute is required if the time_constant attribute is present.

Permissible Value(s)ValueValue Meaning
 Double Poledouble pole filter.
 NoneNo instrumental time constant, in which case time_constant and sigma_time_constant are both zero.
 Single PoleA single pole filter with impulse response given by h(t) = (t/t_c^2)exp(-t/t_c) for t greater than 0, 0 for t less than 0, where t_c is the time constant. See Eq. 9 Elliot et al. (1984) Astron. J. 1587-1603.
