Raw data dumps

ESR data format

Data is recorded in the matlab4 data format and consists of several blocks:

  • the experiment info, d_ExpInfo (ASCII string)
  • the antenna parameters (see below), d_parbl (32 bit reals)
  • the data, d_data (2×32 bit complex reals)
  • the raw samples (not always present), d_raw (216 bit complex integers)
