Pxiel to wavelength
  • Used equation,
 \begin{equation} \lambda= \sum_{n=1}^{n}C_n(p-\alpha m)^n \end{equation}

  • Cut off point= -0.05, $x(i+\Delta x) - x(i-\Delta x), \Delta x=1$, minimum x range to be considered a peak=2.
  • $C_n$ coefficient, equal to the gradient of the plot for pixel and wavelength values. $p$ is the pixel values. $\alpha$ is another scaling coefficient as moving 1mm does not move pixel by 1pixel. m is the micrometer setting. n is the order of polynomial

  • Plot for Helium spectrum:

  • Helium line at 4.20mm:
  • Sigma value of 3 pixels

  • Helium spectrum at 0.50mm:
  • Sigma value of 6 pixels

  • Helium spectrum at 7.80mm:
  • Sigma value of 7 pixels
