[edit] Quick Peaks Gadget

The Quick Peaks gadget is available from the Gadgets menu when a graph window is active.

This gadget can be used to just pick peaks, or to pick and integrate peaks. (Note: The Integrate gadget does not detect peaks; it only integrates all data inside ROI.)

The Quick Peaks gadget features:

  • Multiple methods for detecting and defining a baseline.
  • Ability to define a baseline for data within ROI or for an entire dataset, including data outside of ROI.
  • Multiple methods for finding peaks.
  • Support for output of over 15 selectable peak parameters, including peak locations in x/y, area, and centroid.
  • Fit Peaks context menu for performing a multi-peak fit after peak detection.

  • Ability to specify X and Y axis scale using two sets of horizontal and vertical lines.
  • Image pan and zoom. Hold down the Z key to manipulate the image view using your mouse.
  • Extra X, Y reference lines to help with accurate placement of axis scale definition lines.
  • Ability to save Axis and Rotation settings to a file for future use on similar images.
  • Ability to digitize multiple traces and save the results to a single worksheet and graph.
  • Automatic update of output values when adjusting selected points to correct for position.
  • Automatic update of output values when axis scale is adjusted after picking points.
  • Ability to add labels to picked points. Click the Set Label button to enter Label Editing mode, then double-click any picked point to add a label. When done setting labels, click the Set Label button again to exit Label Editing mode.
  • Access to the resulting worksheet or graph directly from the Digitizer dialog box.
