Raman Spectroscopy

This page contains all the necessary code to calibrate the X-axis of a spectrometer so you can plot your results as a function of wavelength (or wavenumber in this case) instead of pixel number.  You will need a spectrometer capable of acquiring a spectrum that is a string of numbers, each the intensity at a particular wavelength and a calibration standard such as a Raman scattering target.  The example given here uses a 785 nm LASER and Acetominophen standard but with a bit of modification, this technique should be able to work on emission standards such as Xenon or Argon lamps or work with any LASER wavelength.

Take a look at the Matlab code by clicking on this link.

First, download all the following files into one folder on your computer.  The run the Matlab script "Run_n_show_result.m"  This will show you the calibration on our system.  Then you can replace the spectra with your own and modify the Matlab script accordingly to calibrate your spectrometer.
