 Renishaw’s Windows-based Raman Environment (WiRE 5.4) is the software developed by Renishaw plc. to control the acquisition of spectral data and to provide users with data processing and analysis tools. Among others, WiRE allows to automatically remove cosmic rays and subtract baselines from all spectra in a hyperspectral map. It can be used to identify different materials when searched against a spectral library, calculate concentrations, or perform particle statistics.
