What happened up to now:

  • 2000- 2016: read more about the history of Spekwin32 & Spectragryph
  • April 2016: Kickstarter campaign for funding Spectragryph development. Failed at 66% of target sum.
  • May- June 2016: With the direct fundraising attempt, about 23% of the initial Kickstarter goal could be raised. Enough to begin the software development work in 06/2016.
  • June - Nov 2016: Working full-time on the new software, while the funding sum slowly rose to about EURO 7000 (about 29% of the Kickstarter goal). After some interruption due to change of location, the first version of the new Spectragryph software was finally released on Nov. 11 2016.
  • Dec 2016: Started another funding request to enable the next development steps. New target was a funding sum of EURO 12000 (50% of the Kickstarter goal) for creating new functionality like spectral database search, automation of processing steps and spectrometer hardware control! The target was reached 3 days before deadline and slowly mounted to EUR 14500 since then.
  • Nov. 2016 - until now: ongoing further development of Spectragryph. In 19 releases, made countless improvements, added 20 new file formats and created major areas of functionality. See version history for details.


First Spectragryph version released on Nov. 11 2016 . Current version is v1.2.8

The new target:

  • Let's raise the total funding sum together from the current 14,500 EURO to: 20,000 EURO
  • Let's reach this goal until March 28.
  • Enable further development goals, as laid out partly in the master plan and also beyond.
  • As there are:
    • spreadsheet mode and Excel interaction for direct access to data values
    • enabling time series and time kinetics processing
    • result assessment + report generation
    • deconvolution of overlapping peaks with Gaussian, Lorentzian profiles
    • more spectral file formats (Cary Eclipse, Shimadzu FTIR Affinity, Agilent Varian FTIR, ...)
    • controlling more spectrometer hardware (Wasatch, B&W Tek, Agilent 8453, ...)
