Why is it important?

This method significantly speeds up the analysis of molecular spectra and is also more robust than calculating integrals under individual lines.


Finally we could focus on the method and not only on the result. I sincerely hope that explaining the method in detail and making it available for free will result in people really using it widely. Having an efficient and robust tool for analyzing molecular spectra could remove the main obstacle in utilizing the measured molecular spectra in plasma research.
