Help with a peakfitting software

  1. Jul 21, 2009 #1
    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.

    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.

    I haven't used PeakFit for a long time, so don't have an answer to your question, but you may have a look at another peak fitting program: http://www.unipress.waw.pl/fityk/" [Broken] (it's free).
