What is SpectroChemPy?

SpectroChemPy (SCPy) is a framework for processing, analyzing and modeling Spectroscopic data for Chemistry with Python. It is a cross-platform software, running on Linux, Windows or OS X.


Among its major features:

  • A NDDataset object embedding array of data with labeled axes and metadata.
  • A Project manager to work on multiple NDDataset simultaneously.
  • Physical Units for NDDataset.
  • Mathematical operations over NDDataset such addition, multiplication and many more ...
  • Import functions to read data from experiments or modeling programs ...
  • Display functions such as plot for 1D or nD datasets ...
  • Export functions to csv, xls formats ...
  • Preprocessing functions such as baseline correction, automatic subtraction and many more ...
  • Fitting capabilities for single or multiple datasets ...
  • Exploratory analysis such as SVD, PCA, MCR_ALS, EFA ...


 SpectroChemPy is still experimental and under active development.
 Its current design is subject to major changes, reorganizations, bugs and crashes!!!.
