When an experiment concludes, AfterMath places all the results generated by the experiment into a special folder called a study folder.  Inside a study folder is a read-only copy of the experiment Experiment that includes the results and specification parameters, Specification along with one or more plots Plot of results.  See Figure 1 for an example study folder.

The precise contents of a study folder will vary depending on the type of experiment.  In the example shown in Figure 1, the type of experiment that was completed is Dual Electrode Voltammetry (DECV). Dual Electrode Voltammetry (DECV) Inside the study folder are three items: experiment, other plots, and Voltammogram.  The experiment node contains critical information, including the timestamp, instrument details, software version, and read-only copies of the results and specification (see Figure 2).  More details on the experiment node can be found here.

Most experiments automatically create one or more default plots in the study folder after their completion.  In this example, a plot called "Voltammogram" displays results in a manner most users would expect to see from a DECV experiment (see Figure 3).

AfterMath also automatically generates several auxiliary plots of the data collected during an experiment.  These plots are often very useful when troubleshooting electrochemical results as they can provide deeper insight into the instrument signal and response during the experiment.  These plots are placed into a folder Folder called "other plots" within the study folder (see Figure 4).  In the example shown below, two additional plots showing the individual current and potential responses are located inside the "other plots" folder (see Figures 5 and 6).
