Archive options

While BREIN is running, it produces a lot of files in the archive and the database folder. These directories are subfolders of the BREIN program directory (up to now). In order to avoid that this directory blows up over time you can use the following options to store all permanent data outside the program folder. Within the BREIN program folder only temporary files are used – so it should not increase in size any more. Make sure that the Cleaner program is running, and connect BREIN to an external SQL database if you can.

The archive can now be located anywhere in your file system – it need not be a subdirectory of the BREIN program folder.

You can switch off writing result files to the archive.

You can switch off writing scan files to the archive.

The database history files can be stored to the archive as well, instead of being stored in the product folder within the database.

Fit sheet resistance values

CODE 3.96

A new OLE command has been implemented: import_measured_sheet_resistance(a_value : float)

Use this command to pass a measured sheet resistance value to CODE. This is useful if you would like to use this value in a fit, in addition to measured optical spectra.

The value is passed to the list of integral quantities. The list must contain an object of type ‘Sheet resistance’ with the name ‘Sheet resistance fit’ – only in this case the value is passed as target value.

In order to use this value you must set the option ‘optimize’ of the sheet resistance object. If you want to fit both spectra and sheet resistance, you must set the global fit option ‘Combine fit deviation of spectra and integral quantities’.
