Paper II of the LIFE paper series accepted for publication

In Dannert & Ottiger et al. (link to arxiv), the LIFE team describes the process of simulating a LIFE observation with the publicly available LIFEsim tool (github link). Starting from assumptions about the array architecture and a description of the beam combination scheme, we present our methods for signal simulation (Figure top) and the subsequent extraction of planets (Figure Bottom), finding that mid-IR nulling interferometry can indeed provide direct measurements of planetary radii, temperatures and astrometry.
