Here's a routine to fit an exponential of the form sign*(A*e^{-t/tau}
+ offset) using scipy.optimize.odr.

def fitExponentialODR(y, x0, t, sign, fitType, verbose, maxIterations):
    Fit exponential of form y = sign * (A*e^(-t/tau) + offset) using

    y: target array (must be rank 1)
    x0: initial guess of (A, tau, offset)
    t: array
    sign: +/-1
    fitType: ODR_LSQ or ODR_EXP

    @returns (A, tau, offset, fit, sd_amp, sd_tau, sd_offset)


    R = fitODR(exponentialDecay, t, y, x0, fitType, verbose,
maxIterations, sign)

        return None
        (output, fit) = R

    A = output.beta[0]
    tau = output.beta[1]
    offset = output.beta[2]

    sd_amp = output.sd_beta[0]
    sd_tau = output.sd_beta[1]
    sd_offset = output.sd_beta[2]

    return (A, tau, offset, fit, sd_amp, sd_tau, sd_offset)

def fitODR(fn, x, y, x0, fitType, verbose, maxIterations, *args):
    fn function to fit
    x function input
    y target function output
    x0 initial parameters
    fitType One of ODR_LSQ (least squares) or ODR_EXP (explicit ODR)
    verbose If true, print verbose output on error. Else, fail
silently (return None)
    maxIterations Maximum number of iterations without convergence.
Re-run will use double

    @returns (odr.output, fit)
    assert(0 <= fitType <= 2)

    model = S.odr.Model(fn, extra_args=args)
    data = S.odr.Data(x, y)
    odr = S.odr.ODR(data, model, x0, maxit=maxIterations)

    output = odr.run()

    if(output.info >= 4): #no convergence or ODRPACK thinks results
are "questionable"
            print 'ODRPACK unable to find solution:\n',
            print 'Retrying fit...'

        odr.maxit = 2*maxIterations
        output = odr.restart()
        if(output.info >= 4):
                print 'ODRPACK still unable to find solution: \n',
            return None

    return (output, fn(output.beta, x, *args))
