Spectroscopy 2008 Readers’ Choice Awards
OMNIC Specta software uses an algorithm allowing it to make no assumptions about the top hits returned from a search. Each of the best matches is combined with the entire database in a second iteration, with the weightings of the spectra returned. The top pair matches may then be combined with the entire database for a third pass, and then even a fourth iteration can be completed. Since multiple best-match spectra are used at each step, the final result represents a better sampling of possible compositions than the best-match only.
