Description

Q0, Quality Parameter for Electron Data

Caveats
Q0 is a Quality Parameter calculated from the Properties of the Input Data and Goodness-of-Fit Statistics from the Nonlinear Fitting Process. It varies between 0 and 10. Higher Values of Q0 represent more Confidence in the resulting Electron Parameters.
