Hi Andy,

Thank you for suggesting a workshop on processing spectra using ISIS. Everybody will have different issues and I agree that your ideas of how to proceed are in line with my own thoughts. I do not think that setting up a session on tuning the instrument is necessarily the most difficult part but maybe it would be welcome to those just starting out. Isis is a very quirky piece of software and do have on my PC samples produced by Francois Cochard.

Working from first principles consider the following: –

1 Setting up the working directory

2 Data reduction using the master tab

3 Wavelength calibration

4 Instrument response curves

5 use of GNPLOT
