INS Database

This collection is a subset of the spectra recorded on TFXA and TOSCA.
The spectra can be viewed in this repository and may be downloaded. For every entry there is an image file (GIF) and a three column ASCII file. For some entries there is also a JCAMP-DX file.

The formats consist of:

GIF suitable for most graphics programs and web browsers

DAT ASCII suitable for Excel, Origin (and other spreadsheets and plotting packages) and ACLIMAX

JCAMP-DX the standard ASCII format for infrared and Raman spectroscopy

The spectra can be viewed interactively using the CHIME plug-in. Once it is installed click on the download JCAMP-DX button to view the spectum. Right clicking on the spectrum shows other options including a save option.

All the formats include the name of the principal investigator and their affiliation and a literature reference if the work has been published.

For publications that use the spectra please cite either the reference or use the form:

"Principal investigator, affiliation, unpublished work from ISIS, Chilton, UK"
