5.2.1 Detector Temperature
The historical temperature of the spectrometer detector is graphed over time, allowing you to visually confirm that the setpoint and TEC are functioning as expected. You may also generate your own saveable temperature strip-chart by using “batch collection” and either the CSV “append” mode, or “exporting” a series of spectra, and then graphing the resulting “temperature” column in Excel.
5.2.2 Laser Temperature
Laser temperature is likewise graphed over time.
Future versions of ENLIGHTEN™ will automatically disable the laser temperature graph for non-Raman spectrometers.
5.2.3 Waterfall Histogram
As an experimental feature, ENLIGHTEN™ includes a visual two-dimensional “waterfall” of recent spectra, providing a conceptual view of what monochromatic light might look like as it is diffracted across the detector. Below the waterfall is a simple intensity spectrum over the time period shown by the waterfall, and to the side is a histogram of binned intensity values by frequency. These charts are provided for hardware troubleshooting and visualization, and are not intended for spectroscopic analysis.
