With this inspector some mathematical manipulation of data can be done.
Smooth & Datareduction
Data Reduction: Sometimes it is useful to reduce a large number of data points which consist mainly of noise to a more practical amount of points. This function takes n points (n is specified in the Factor field), builds the average, and replaces the n points with the new one.
FFT Smooth: This functions uses as effective smooth width the value from the Factor field and performs a FFT based smooth to reduce the noise on the buffer (see sources).
Smooth: This functions uses as effective smooth width the value from the Factor field and performs a least square smooth to reduce the noise on the buffer.
This function calculates a nonparametric cubic spline interpolation (see sources) for all selected buffers.
Points: Defines the number of points which should be calculated for each interval.
Strength: Defines the strength of the interpolation. 2 is in most cases a god choice.
Differentiate & Integrate
This function allow to differentiate and integrate buffers (see sources).
Interval: This the effective interval which will be used to calculate the differentiation.
Differentiate: Differentiate all selected buffer and generate new buffers with the result data.
Integrate: Integrates all selected buffer and generate new buffers with the result data. The integrate function does not need the interval.
FFT (Fast Fourier Transform)
This function makes a Fast Fourier Transform for all selected buffers.
Windowing: This radio button defines the data windowing mode. For more information about FFT and data windowing read the sources.
This two functions allow Shirley background subtraction and X-ray satellite subtraction from X-ray photoelectron spectra.
The reference points for Shirley backround subtraction can be defined with the Shirley backround mouse mode
Find Y: The Find Y button calculates optimal Y values which depend to the X values for the shirley background subtraction.
Shirley: Performs the Shirley background subtraction
Satsub: Performa the X-ray satellite subtraction for the given anode type.
