HDF5-based smFRET file format¶
We developed an HDF5-based format called Photon-HDF5 for smFRET and other measurements involving series of photon timestamps. The specifications of the Photon-HDF5 format can be found in Photon-HDF5 format.
For a general overview on the importance of a standard file format for smFRET see also Why an HDF5-based smFRET file format.
Read and write HDF5 smFRET files¶
To load a smFRET data contained in HDF5-Ph-Data use the
You can convert files from any format to Photon-HDF5 by using phconvert (already pre-installed with FRETBursts).
