CDBTools - Evaluate Positron Annihilation Coincidence Doppler Broadening Spectrum


Article Preview

CDBTools is a lightweight and easy to use application designed to provide you with an analysis tool for coincidence Doppler broadening (CDB) of the positron annihilation energy spectrum files. This application enables you to analyze the CDB and ratio curves, plots as well as graphs representing the evolution of the orbital electron momentum spectrum. The CDB extraction is provided by selectable filters applied at the diagonal line of the input matrix. To achieve CDB ratio curves with minimal error caused by 511keV peak shift, spectrum curves are recalculated by penalized regression spline.
