Now, I am not sure if this is the appropriate forum to post this in but I need some help with a particular peakfitting software, and my advisor has never used it before so I can't really ask anyone in our lab.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am currently using seasolve's PeakFit, what I am trying to do is fit a gaussian curve to some UV-vis spectra in a particular wavelength range. I can do this but the way I am doing this seems very ad hocish to me. What I really want to do is use the automated peakfiting to fit a gaussian to this particular wavelength range to a particular r-squared value. I am wondering if anyone has any advice for doing this, or tips and tricks for using peakfit in general.

Thanks in advance for any replies.
