This is a synthetic data set intended for testing and demonstration. Function generate_faux_cell() simulates the faux cell data (note: in the future, it is planned to parameterize the funcion) and object faux_cell is an instance of this dataset generated first time it is used.

The data set resembles the chondro data set but is entirely synthetic.




The object faux_cell is a hyperSpec object that contains 875 Raman-like spectra, allocated to three groups/regions in column region: the matrix/background, the cell and the cell nucleus. Each spectrum is composed of 300 data points. The spectrum of each region is unique and simple, with a single peak at a particular frequency and line width. Poisson noise has been added. The data is indexed along the x and y dimensions, simulating data collected on a grid.

An object of class hyperSpec of dimension 875 x 4 x 300.
