Raman Spectrometry Conclusions as an Example of Intuitive SoftwareThere is a lack of accessibility in Raman spectrometry (used to detect the presence of compounds in provided samples). It was determined that by creating a software which aided in reducing human error, along with development of a smaller scale hardware, this accessibility issue could be remedied. In this work the researcher developed an algorithm to automatically compare the obtained spectrum to a database of known spectrums to detect the presence of organic compounds. Future work will involve improving the detection efficiency of the algorithm, offering more intuitive software and making usability simpler.
