PyUvVis 0.1.1-2

Pandas-based toolkit for spectral data analysis, primarily UVVis spectra for now.

What is it

pyuvvis is a set of wrappers and tools written using the pandas library with the intention of exploring spectral data, especially UV-Vis spectroscopy.




The official documentation is generously hosted by github.

Goals and Background

pyuvvis originally began at the George Washington University in an effort to develop exploratory and visualization techniques with UvVis data, particularly the output of fiberoptic/nanotechnology research.

The decision to officialy package these nascent tools was made for the following reasons:

  1. To faciliate easier sharing and better organization between collaborators.
  2. To document the progress and functionalities of the toolset.
  3. To broadcast the toolkit to the community, and hopefully to merge with other Python spectroscopy packages.

In regard to the final point, pyuvvis is not an attempt to be the de-facto spectroscopy toolkit in Python; rather, it is a domain-specific wrapper for pandas. It should be quite extensible to other spectroscopy domains, where it may perform a supporting or ancillary role. It is our hope that in the future, other internal GWU tools for fiber optics design and nanomaterial plasmonics, combined with this package, may form the basis for a crude nano-optics Python package.


In the pyuvvis directory (same one where you found this file), execute:

python install

See for additional help.

The developmental version can be cloned from github:

git clone

And installed in a similar manner:

cd pyuvvis

python install
