NTIS: PB 192 017 :14 pages
A program was written which utilizes a remote teletype input to a timesharing computer to plot charged particle or x-ray energy spectra which are stored in the memory of multichannel analyzers. The program, written in Fortran V, accepts the data printed out by the pulse height analyzer on paper tape and then, after reading these data tapes into the computer, plots on the teletype the desired energy spectra on a scale automatically adjusted for the maximum number occurring in the data. The program is flexible enough so that the researcher can subsequently expand or contract the vertical (intensity) or horizontal (energy) scales. With a slight modification, the program will accept data, printouts from scalers or analog to digital converters. The program also includes a feature for integrating the energy peaks obtained by pulse height analysis.
