Empty Mixture Create a new mixture with no content. See here for an example of working this way.
Linear Molecule Create a mixture set up for a single 1Σ+ - 1Σ+ transition, with a band origin at 1000 cm-1 and upper and lower rotational constants of 1 cm-1. See Making a Linear Molecule data file for more details.
New Asymmetric Top Create a simple asymmetric top data file. See Making an Asymmetric Top Data File for more details.
New Symmetric Top Create a simple symmetric top data file. See Making a Symmetric Top Data File for more details.
New Vibrational Spectrum Set up a basic data file for simulating vibrational structure. See Making a basic data file for simulating vibrational structure for more details.
Calibration, I2 Add overlay of the visible absorption spectrum of I2
Calibration, Ne Add overlay of transitions of atomic Ne
Calibration, Optogalvanic Ne
Add overlay of transitions from an Optogalvanic Ne spectrum
Calibration, Fe Add overlay of transitions of atomic Fe
Open any file, including parameter (.pgo) files and experimental data files for overlay (.dat, .ovr)
Save simulation parameters in a .pgo file. If a file name has not been specified then you will be prompted to browse for a suitable name.
Save As...
As for Save, but the standard save file dialog will appear to allow you to browse to a suitable file name.
Import Old Pgopher... Load old (version 4 and below) PGOPHER data files. (The older PGOPHER program only handled linear molecules, and had a very different interface.)
Old D3h... Load old D3h data file. (The D3h program handled symmetric tops only.)
Import CALPGM file... Import molecular parameter (.par) data files for Herb Pickett's CALPGM/SPCAT/SPFIT spectroscopy program suite ( Note that not all files can be handled; you will see an error message if this is the case. Some files may also require manual adjustment after import
Import HITRAN File... Import HITRAN file as external line list.
Import Binary File... Import binary overlay file
Import l matrix... Import normal modes from ab initio program output. See Importing l matrices for more details.
Export Line List... Export current simulation as a line list to a file. This prompts for a filename and then an intensity threshold, expressed as a fraction of the strongest line.
Main Plot... Export lower or only plot to a file. Possible formats include:
  • a text file (.txt, .dat) which contains a list of points plotted in a simple x, y format.
  • A .svg file, which can be read and edited by various graphics programs, including Firefox for reading and Inkscape for editing.
  • xfig format, associated with TEX.
See Exporting Plots for more information.
Export Top Plot...
Export top plot to a file - see above for possible formats
Set for subsequent file loads (.pgo files and overlays) to merge rather than overwrite
File Options Save Positions If checked (not the default) save window positions to the .pgo file when writing it.
File Options Save Settings If checked (the default) save plot settings not recorded in the mixture to the .pgo file when writing it.
File Options Load Positions If checked (the default) load window positions from a .pgo file when reading.
File Options Load Settings If checked (the default) load plot settings from a .pgo file when reading.
Start a separate, independent copy of PGOPHER.
