I am trying to use Kepler Data for Eclipsing Binaries to estimate time period, and then other parameters such as mass, eccentricity, semi-major axis, distance, etc. of the binary systems. I want to write code in MATLAB which will use FFT to find the time period. The available data has the following columns:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

bjd(date) | phase | raw_flux | raw_err | corr_flux | corr_err | dtr_flux | dtr_err

My question : Does this data require any cleaning? And If I want to take the FFT of the data to find time period, which data should I use? (If there is another method for finding time, please do suggest)
