Rating Spectra and Suites of SpectraΒΆ

While the data in X-ray Absorption Data Library are meant to be of high quality, we cannot actually guarantee the quality of any of the spectra here. It is not always clear what sort of quality would be expected. For example, a spectrum could be very good data, but off significantly in energy calibration, or taken at an unusually poor energy resolution. Such spectra are still valuable, even if they are not of the highest quality.

Instead of trying to have one person curate the spectra here, we encourage users and subject-matter experts to use the Ratings and Review so as to give a community-wide curation. If you think a particular spectrum has problems, or that the sample used may have been contaminated, please give a Rating and Review saying so.
