Beam window functions have computed with the Febecop Pipeline (as described there), and
the QuickPol pipeline
(see Hivon et al, 2017 ^{[1]}, and the 2018 Planck Likelihood paper).

The beam window functions relate, over the full sky or over a masked sky, the angular power spectrum measured (in the absence of noise) on a map produced by a set of detectors CMB).

, to the true underlying sky angular power spectrum (assumed to have isotropic statistical properties, as is the case for the### QuickPol effective beam window functions[edit]

They are available in two forms:

- The beam window functions

such that HFI maps). They are provided in FITS files, in a format compatible with HEALPix tools such as synfast and smoothing, as well as with PolSpice.

for X=T,E or B, and where is the pixel window function, which depends on the resolution parameter Nside (=2048 for Planck- Beam matrix
