Hi Everybody,

Thank you very much for your help but it seems like I've found the solution.
The Fit I am looking for is working. I made a really bad mistake.
I removed the points of the Top of my curve, and tried to find a fit like a Gaussian with the remained points.
Actually it worked, I just didn't gave enought points to replot the curve with its top.

Nonetheless I have a lot to do now and all your advices were really helpfull.

thank you everybody

Have a nice weekend
