Raman Data Search and Storage (RDSS)

Raman Data Search and Storage (RDSS) software was developed as an analytical tool for a fast and accurate identification of unknown minerals by comparison of their spectra with the indexed library of data. A search function was implemented to enable users to find a specific peak value. Using the asterisk character (*) as a placeholder for one or more unknown peak value(s), the software will return the best match(es). Besides the search utility by the Raman band positions, which was proven to be priceless in the interpretation of Raman spectra, the RDSS software gives the user the ability to display and inspect the Raman spectra quickly and very efficiently. Users can zoom into the Raman spectrum, shift in any direction the wavenumber and the intensity axes, and if any part of the spectral display is clicked, that region will be highlighted and the specific wavenumber returned. A photo for every sample entry stored in the database is also available.

For more information (download, screenshots) about RDSS project, you can go to the official website of Raman Data Search and Storage application

This area (software development) is new to me, reason for beginning to 'explore'. For any proposal don't hesitate to contact me on this e-mail adress: andrei.apopei@geology.uaic.ro.
