SimuMoss: Mössbauer spectra analysis

Published on 3 October 2020



Implied laboratory
Chemistry and Biology Metals laboratory (CBM)
Interdisciplinary Research Institute of Grenoble (IRIG)
Scientific context
Iron is one of the metals essential to the living world. It is involved in many essential life processes such as fixing or transporting oxygen. A technique used to study iron is the Mössbauer spectroscopy. It allows to access to information like iron environment or oxidation degree.
The Physicochemistry of Metals in Biology team of the CBM laboratory has recently acquired new facilities in Mössbauer spectroscopy.
Description of the project
The project has resulted in a software which allow to treat the Mössbauer data produced by the platform. The features are:
- experimental data treatment in order to produce experimental spectra
- calculation of theoretical spectra in function of parameters set by the user (see Figure below)
- simulation of one or several experimental spectra (comparison between an experimental spectrum and a theoretical spectrum and minimization of their difference)
Used technologies
Desktop application developed with Java (Swing, Spring, AspectJ, JFreeChart, JUnit).
