Paper Abstract

Commercial infrared and Raman spectral libraries are generally only available at 16 cm-1 resolution by 8-bit ordinate precision. This is relatively low resolution compared to the typical spectrum acquired at 4 cm-1 by 16-bit precision. The low resolution format for libraries was selected to optimize library search speeds and reduce computer hardware requirements. Full 4 cm-1 spectral libraries offer a number of advantages including the positive identification of closely related compounds and greatly improved results when using spectral subtractions.
