This repository contains noise spectra for individual pulsars and stochastic gravitational wave background sensitivity curves for the NANOGrav 15-year data set analysis, highlighted in the paper "The NANOGrav 15-Year Data Set: Detector Characterization and Noise Budget" (DOI: 10.3847/2041-8213/acda88). As in the paper, these spectra include the noise recovered from a common uncorrelated process analysis across the entire PTA. In other words, the spectra include the white noise, the power from the common process and any significant additional red noise in an individual pulsar.
