JCAMP-DX is a standard file form for exchange of infrared spectra and related chemical and physical information between spectrometer data systems of different manufacture, main-frame time-sharing systems, general purpose lab computers, and personal computers. It is compatible with all media: telephone, magnetic and optical disk, magnetic tape, and even the printed page (via optical reader). All data are stored as labeled fields of variable length using printable ASCII characters. A JCAMP-DX… Expand

JCAMP — DX, A Standard?
The types of errors found in the present generation of JCAMP-DX files and handling software will be discussed and a programme capable of checking the transport file format, diagnosing errors, and where possible correcting errors will be presented. Expand
JCAMP-CS: A Standard Exchange Format for Chemical Structure Information in Computer-Readable Form
The JCAMP-DX format provides a Standard for the exchange of data on IR spectra. Extensions of this format to other spectral data are being developed. Spectral data should always be accompanied byExpand

The aim of this paper is to adapt JCAMP-DX to the special requirements of ion mobility spectra. Expand
A Proposed Implementation of JCAMP-DX
The structure of this implementation of JCAMP-DX is more restrictive than the generic format. There must be no space between the data label text and the "=", and at least one space between the "="Expand
Standard Formats for Presentation of Spectroscopic Data on Enzymes
Spectroscopic methods are often used to follow the course of enzymecatalysed reactions. UV/visible spectrophotometry is the most common, but a wide range of other spectroscopic techniques, includingExpand
