PGOPHER <Prev Next>


The current version of PGOPHER is the product of many years research in the general area of spectroscopy. During that time my work has mainly been funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and (in the early stages) by The Royal Society. I should also acknowledge the input of colleagues in Bristol and around the world for assistance in testing, finding bugs and making suggestions for improvements to the programs. There are too many to name individually on the whole, though I should mention Nicky Elliott who helped in the preparation of this documentation.
