- Found peak using second derivative of data. Double differential used as it enables us to find some hidden peaks.
- Picked a cut off point for second derivative of data to give a range, and , where the values inside the range would be considered a peak
- Used equation,

- RMS was obtained by the equation,

- FWHM can be obtained by .

- Peak locator algorithm used for camera angle at 1.50mm:

- First attempt at error bars, setting y error as the square root of the count:

- Error bars are tiny due to incorrect assumption that data follows a poison distribution.

- Gaussian function used:

- Chi squared function used:

- Cd spectrum at 06.50mm with Gaussian fits, error bars and Chi squared values:

- Array of test parameters passed to fucntion : test_array_Cd650 = [[8E6, 150, 30, 3E5], [1.6E7, 270, 30, 3E5], [1.6E7, 520, 30, 3E5]]
- Chi squared values are huge as expected due to poor fit. Once errors and fit equation are correct, Chi squared should reduce.
