SSHADE Documentation

The “Solid Spectroscopy Data Model” (SSDM) is a relational data model allowing a complete description of spectral data of solid materials. It includes a detailed description of the solid samples through their layers, materials, constituents and species. Natural matters have their specific description. The instruments and techniques used for the measurements are also described. The spectral data are of two types: spectra and their various higher levels products (instrument specific) and band lists (band parameters and transition attributions [under development]). Publications associated with the spectral data are also included in this data model. SSDM is the base of the SSHADE database infrastructure of spectroscopy of solids.

The current stable version of SSDM (version 0.9.0) implemented in SSHADE has been released in November 2019. It has many major changes, improvements and additions relative to the previous version 0.8.5 (January 2018) used when SSHADE was put on-line for the first time.

An extension of the data model (SSDM-BL) for the description of the 'Band List and bands' is under development for the implementation of the new“Band List database of solide spectroscopy”. It will be also posted here when a first stable version will be reached.
