AtomDB Kappa Model (ACX)

The AtomDB team is happy to announce the release of the first AtomDB model for non-Maxwellian electron energy distributions. We have released the package, called Kappa, to model Kappa distributed electron energies.

This projects was due to work by Xiaohong Cui, with a paper describing the work currently in press with ApJ. We will update this page with the paper when it is available. In the meantime the package itself is available on Github, with documentation here.
