Here you will find a summary of the currently available plot functions. Further information for the application of specific functions and their use are to be found in Manuals/Plotfunktionen.

The list of functions and their description is continuously being updated. A complete summary of all functions is given in the current Luminescence-Manual.

**Summary:**

# |
Function |
Description |

1 | plot_BINfileData() | Plots single luminescence curves from a BIN file object (readBIN2R()) |

2 | plot_GrowthCurve() | Fits and plots a dose response curve (growth curve) |

3 | plot_Histogram() | Plots a histogram incl. extra error plot |

4 | plot_RadialPlot() | Plots a radial plot after Galbraith et al. (1999) |

**1. plot_BINfileData()**

The function plot_BINfileData() displays single luminescence curves graphically. As the only mandatory argument the function is passed an object which has previously been generated by the function readBIN2R. The remaining arguments are optional or are passed in the course of default values.

- Application
- By calling plot_BINfileData() and passing the required arguments, luminescence curves are being plotted.
- Arguments
- BINfileData

This argument is mandatory. This is a so-called S4 object which is generated by the function readBIN2R. - position

optional argument that indicates the position (of the aliquot) to be plotted. - sorter

Default argument that sorts a series of plotted curves according to the parameters POSITION, SET or RUN (as contained in the Sequence Editor filed from Risø) - ltype

Default argument, defines the type of plotted luminescence curve, e.g. IRSL, OSL, TL und RBR (= LM-OSL). - dose_rate

Optional argument, indicating the dose rate (in Gy s-1) of the radiation source used. - cex.global

Default argument, defining the number of plots on an A4 page.

**2. plot_GrowthCurve()**

The function plot_GrowthCurve() plots a dose response curve (growth curve) in case a regenerative measurement protocol was used for data acquisition. As the only mandatory argument an object is passed to the function which has previously been generated by the function readBIN2R. The remaining arguments are optional or are passed in the course of default values.

- Application
- By the call of plot_GrowthCurve()and passing the required arguments dose response curves are being plotted.
- Arguments
- sample

This argument is mandatory. Data frame with three columns for x=Dose,y=LxTx,z=LxTx.Error, y1=TnTx. The column for the test dose response is optional, but requires ’TnTx’ as column name if used. - main

Default argument, header of the plot. - mtext

Optional argument, additional text on the right side of the plot. - fit.method

Default argument, functions used for fitting. Possible options are: LIN,

EXP, EXP OR LIN,EXP+LIN or EXP+EXP. - fit.weights

Default argument, option whether the fitting is done with or without weights. - fit.includingRepeatedRegPoints

Default argument, includes repeated points for fitting (TRUE/FALSE). - fit.NumberRegPoints

Optional argument, set number of regeneration points manually. By default the number of all(!) regeneration points is grepped automatically. - fit.NumberRegPointsReal

Optional argument, if the number of regeneration points is provided manually the value of the real regenerations points = all points - repeated points - reg 0 has to be inserted. - fit.bounds

Default argument, set lower fit bounds for fitting parameter to 0. Limited for the use with the fit methods EXP, EXP+LIN and EXP OR LIN. Argument to be inserted for experimental application only! - NumberIterations.MC

Default argument, number of Monte Carlo simulation for the error estimation. - xlab

Default argument, unit for x-axis labelling. Possible values are "Gy" and

"s". - output.plot

Default argument, plot output (TRUE/FALSE). - output.plotExtended

Default argument, If TRUE 3-plots on one plot area are provided: (1) growth curve, (2) histogram from error Monte Carlo simulation and (3) a test dose response plot. If FALSE, just the growth curve will be plotted. Requires: output.plot = TRUE - cex.global

Default argument, defining the number of plots on an A4 page.
