I have an object that contains signal values. I want to find the length of the signal inbetween two elements in the field called uppFWHMSignal and lowFWHMSignal.
function FWHM(Obj,signal)
for CellNr=StartCellNr:EndCellNr
for iFrame=1:length(Obj.CompCellList{CellNr})%ib:id
Obj.Data{CellNr}{iFrame}.([signal,'uppFWHMSignal'])= max(max(Obj.Datat{CellNr}{iFrame}.(signal))/2);
Obj.Data{CellNr}{iFrame}.([signal,'lowFWHMSignal'])= min(max(Obj.Data{CellNr}{iFrame}.(signal))/2);
Obj.Data{CellNr}{iFrame}.([signal,'length'])=length(Obj.Data{CellNr}{iFrame}.(signal)); %length of the signal
Thank you

It seems like you're trying to define a function in MATLAB that calculates the Full Width at Half Maximum (FWHM) for a given signal within an object. The FWHM is a measure of the width of a signal at half of its maximum amplitude. However, there are a few issues with the code you've provided, and it does not actually calculate the FWHM.
Here is a corrected version of the function that attempts to find the indices where the signal crosses the half-maximum threshold and then calculates the width between these two points with a sample MATLAB script to validate the functionality:
%% Sample MATLAB script to validate the FWHM function
% Create a synthetic signal with a clear peak
signalData = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1];
% Construct the object with the expected structure
Obj = struct();
Obj.Data = {{struct('mySignal', signalData)}};
% Define the signal name
signalName = 'mySignal';
% Call the FWHM function with the sample object and signal name
Obj = FWHM(Obj, signalName);
% Accessing the FWHM field with the correct name
fwhmField = [signalName '_FWHM'];
% Display the results
disp(['FWHM: ', num2str(Obj.Data{1}{1}.(fwhmField))]);
% Validate the results
expectedFWHM = 5; % The expected FWHM for the sample signal
actualFWHM = Obj.Data{1}{1}.(fwhmField);
if actualFWHM == expectedFWHM
disp('The FWHM function is working correctly.');
disp('The FWHM function is not working correctly.');
The FWHM function is working correctly.
%% FWHM function definition
function Obj = FWHM(Obj, signalName)
% Calculate the FWHM for a signal within an object
for iCell = 1:length(Obj.Data)
for iFrame = 1:length(Obj.Data{iCell})
% Extract the signal data
signalData = Obj.Data{iCell}{iFrame}.(signalName);
% Find the maximum value of the signal and its index
[maxValue, ~] = max(signalData);
halfMax = maxValue / 2;
% Find indices where the signal is greater than half the max
indicesAboveHalfMax = find(signalData >= halfMax);
% Find the first and last indices where the signal is above half max
firstIndex = indicesAboveHalfMax(1);
lastIndex = indicesAboveHalfMax(end);
% Calculate the FWHM
fwhmValue = lastIndex - firstIndex + 1;
% Store the results in the object
Obj.Data{iCell}{iFrame}.([signalName '_FWHM']) = fwhmValue;
The provided MATLAB function "FWHM" calculates the Full Width at Half Maximum (FWHM) for a specified signal within each frame of data for each cell in an object. The function operates as follows:
  1. Iterate over cells and frames: The function loops through each cell ("iCell") in the "Obj.Data" array and then through each frame ("iFrame") within each cell's data.
  2. Extract signal data: For the current frame of the current cell, the function retrieves the data array corresponding to the signal specified by "signalName".
  3. Find maximum value: The function identifies the maximum value of the signal data array. It uses this value to calculate the half-maximum level ("halfMax"), which is half of the signal's peak value.
  4. Identify indices above half-maximum: The function then finds all indices of the signal data where the value is greater than or equal to the half-maximum level. These indices represent the points on the signal that are at or above half the peak amplitude.
  5. Determine FWHM bounds: From the indices identified in the previous step, the function determines the first and last indices ("firstIndex" and "lastIndex") where the signal is equal to or exceeds the half-maximum level. These indices mark the boundaries of the FWHM.
  6. Calculate FWHM: The FWHM value is calculated as the difference between the last and first indices plus one. This represents the width of the signal at the half-maximum level.
  7. Store FWHM in object: Finally, the calculated FWHM value is stored back into the object under the current cell and frame, with the key being the original "signalName" appended with "_FWHM".
The function modifies the original object by adding the FWHM information for each signal in each frame of each cell, allowing for further analysis or reporting of the signal's characteristics.
