This is the reference documentation for Photon-HDF5 (homepage), a file format for timestamp-based single-molecule spectroscopy experiments such as single-molecule FRET (smFRET) (with or without lifetime), Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) and other related techniques.

Any dataset containing photon timestamps and other per-photon data can be stored in Photon-HDF5 files. Photon-HDF5 is designed for long-term preservation and data sharing and can store experimental details and metadata such as setup configurations, sample information, authorship and provenance.

The present document contains the reference documentation for the Photon-HDF5 format.
