This function opens a 3D view of the data surface, allows you to set up a view, add comments and print it on any installed printer.
NOTE: By default this report shows only the data displayed in main window. You do not need to crop data prior to using this function.
Use the following tips to manipulate the surface:
- Click+drag freely rotates the surface.
- Shift+click+drag works as a panning tool – drags surface.
- Alt+click+drag or mouse wheel: changes zoom.
The top menu on the 3D Surface report window contains the following options:
- Print Window – open standard printer select dialog to print the current view.
- View – contains a list of options to control the 3D surface appearance
- 3D – rotates surface to the 3D view
- Bird’s eye – rotates the surface to the bird’s eye view
- Lighting Switch – toggles external lighting
- Fast Draw – toggles fast draw in the rotation mode (works much faster for large surfaces)
- Color bar – show/hide color bar
- Autoscale Z – set Z and colorbar to autoscale or lock to current values.
- Time Scale – opens the dialog to enter time scale limits
The comment field below the surface contains file information from the main SX window.
This function displays the previously saved spectra (Figure 26). In the top right corner of the screen there are delay times corresponding to each spectrum. You can re-scale the spectrum panel the same way as described for the main window (Introduction to Surface Xplorer).
This function displays the previously saved time profiles (Figure 27). The legend in top right corner of the screen shows wavelength corresponding to each kinetic trace. You can rescale the kinetic panel the same way it is described for the main window on Introduction to Surface Xplorer. At the bottom of the page you can add comments to the file.
Spectra + Kinetics
This function displays the previously saved spectra and kinetic profiles. In the top right corner of each panel screen there are the corresponding times and wavelengths. You can rescale the spectrum or kinetic panel the same way as described for the main window.
Spectra + Kinetics + Global Fit
This function displays the previously saved spectra, kinetic profiles and the results of global analysis (Figure 29).
The top and bottom left panels are similar to those described in the Spectra and Kinetics sections. The bottom right panel contains the results of the global fitting and displays the spectral distributions of the pre-exponential coefficients and the corresponding lifetimes. Each spectrum on that panel corresponds to the lifetime located next to the corresponding color line.
