A laboratory data system was developed, based on the Apple II microcomputer. This system performs data acquisition, experimental parameter control, high resolution graphical display, data storage and transfer. All programming was accomplished in floating point BASIC. A Hitatchi Ultraviolet-Visible Spectrophotometer was interfaced to the laboratory data system (via its 0-2v recorder output), utilizing an AI-02 analog to digital converter card as the interface. Data analysis uses of the system are shown through applications of data smoothing and analytical techniques such as ensemble averaging, Savitzky-Golay digital filtering and curve deconvolution.
