Analysis Software

My analysis programs will be available here, they are designed to work with RSpec software ( but should work with any software that outputs line spectra in two column data format.

The following document contains installation tips and a tutorial for using my software to calculate stellar temperatures:-

Stellar Temperature

Whilst the following document is a tutorial on analysing high resolution spectra using  AlbireoB as an example (see Astrospectroscopy\Projects page).

Analysing AlbireoB

This zip file contains my software, it has been extensively updated (14th Nov 2015) if you use it on existing part processed data then “start from square 1”. The launcher program SpectraTom is not yet converted – don’t use it to run the program SpecSph:-


it is compiled for Windows 10 and is accompanied by documentation and a set of input files to practice on. It also now includes the launcher program SpectraTom.exe (kindly provided by Tom Field the author of RSpec) that can be used instead of Spectra.exe. SpectraTom allows spaces to be included in folder and file names and keeps a list of previously used files.

In order to run the included executables you may need to “right click” on the downloaded zip file, select properties then click the unblock button at the bottom of the General tab. My computer is protected by up-to-date McAfee antivirus software so I believe I am “clean”.
