The horizontal line is the horizontal axis. Setting the option Frame to
True does not turn off the display of the axes. You must set the option
Axes to None as in the example below. (Note that the vertical axis is
also drawn: if you look carefully at the plot from your example you will
notice that the graph touches the top and bottom frames at x == 0;
whereas in the example below there exists a small gap between the graph
and the top and bottom frame. See
http://homepages.nyu.edu/~jmg336/mathematica/spuriousaxes.pdf
)
Test = Table[{x, 1/2 + (Cos[2*2*Pi*x]/2)*(E^(-x^2) +
((1/2)*0.1)/E^(x - 12)^2 + ((1/2)*0.05)/
E^(x - 27)^2 +
1/(10^3*E^(x - 280)^2))}, {x, -10, 40, 0.05}];
ListPlot[Test, PlotRange -> All, Joined -> True, Axes -> None,
Frame -> True,
FrameLabel -> {"Pathlength Mismatch (2\[CenterDot]m mm)",
" Signal\nStrength "},
BaseStyle -> {FontFamily -> "Garamond",
FontSlant -> "Italic", FontSize -> 14}]
