What is an .DSET file?

.DSET is Kratos Dataset File

A DSET file is a data file created by Kratos Vision, a software program used to analyze X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) data. It contains an XPS dataset recorded by Kratos Analytical instruments. DSET files include information about the element being analyzed, such as sensitivity factor and peak position.

Kratos Analytical hardware and software are used in scientific research labs to analyze the biochemistry and surfaces of objects. The XPS instruments record the interaction between the surface of an object and other materials. These interactions of the physical and chemical properties are then saved in DSET files by Kratos Vision. You can use Kratos Vision to open DSET files or you can convert them into ASCII format using CasaXPS.

On a Unix workstation, you can convert DSET files to .KAL files using the following command:

dump_dataset filename.dset all > new_filename.kal

How to solve problems with DSET files

  • Associate the DSET file extension with the correct application. On :
    Windows: Right click on any DSET file and then click "Open with" > "Choose another app". Now select another program and check the box "Always use this app to open *.DSET files". Mac: Right click (or Ctrl-click) the DSET file, then click "Open with" > "Other...". Then choose another program and check the "Always Open With" box. Linux: Right click on the file, and select "Open with" and choose another program. iPhone: Tap the file. If you do not see an app to open the file, then tap Share "Share" and choose an app. Alternatively, save the file.

Then tap "Share" and select an app. Android: Tap the Settings icon on your smartphone, then tap on the Apps section. There tap the Options icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen to change the default apps.
  • Update your software that should actually open .DSET is Kratos Dataset File. Because only the current version supports the latest DSET file format. Search, therefore, e.g. on the Kratos Analytical manufacturer website after an available .DSET is Kratos Dataset File update.
  • To make sure that your DSET file is not corrupted or virus-infected, get the file again and scan it with antivirus software.
