EnvCalc system requirements

EnvCalc comprises files (M-files and P-files) that are run by MATLAB.  The PC, Macintosh and workstation platforms are all supported.  MATLAB 5.2 (release 10, 1998) or later must be installed.  No MATLAB toolboxes are needed to run the EnvCalc functions.

MATLAB is a mathematical calculation language available from The Mathworks, www.mathworks.com.

The basic RAM requirement is the same as that needed to run MATLAB.  More memory is needed to process large data files.  For measurements of 1 million points, 1GB of RAM is recommended.

The configuration of a coherent detection experiment which observes an optical signal in a real-time sampling oscilloscope is described here.
