We need to develop an algorithm to correlate absorption spectra of the solutions with the concentration of a chemical in the solution. I envision an algorithm that trains on a learning set of spectra and concentration values associated with these spectra and then assigns concentration value to an experimental data.
As an outcome of the project I'd like to see a software tool, complete with a crude user interface for testing of this solution in the lab. Once the tests conclude that the algorithm outperforms current data processing method, a group of software developers will incorporate it into the final product that's being developed by our company.
In the attached document you can find an example of the training set. First column is the concentration values, first raw is the wavelength, each raw is the spectrum.
