General data processing software

Digital Micrograph
(Gatan)

The standard software package for acquisition and processing of TEM data (HRTEM images, STEM images, EELS spectra, diffraction patterns). This software is extendable using an own scripting language. Digital micrograph plug ins for data processing include deconvolution tools for spectra and images, focal series reconstruction, processing of EFTEM image series, simulation of EELS spectra, etc.



Matlab
(The Mathworks)

A powerful math-oriented data processing and visualization tool



IDL
(EXELIS, was ITT)

A data processing and visualization tool



GRAMS
(Thermo Scientific)

A tool for visualizing, processing and managing spectroscopy data


 

Simulation software for images and spectra

EMS
(P. Stadelmann)

A software package for electron diffraction analysis and HREM image simulation in materials science



HREM Simulation
(HREM Research)

HREM and diffraction simulation software



STEM Simulation
(HREM Research)

ADF-STEM simulation software



Ideal Microscope
(S. Zhu & J.M. Zuo)

A software tool for simulating kinematic diffraction patterns, including HOLZ- and Kikuchi lines (runs only on Mac)



FEFF8
(J.Rehr)

An automated program for ab-initio multiple-scattering calculations of X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS) and X-ray Absorption Near-Edge Structure (XANES) spectra for clusters of atoms



WIEN2k
(Group P. Blaha, Wien)

A code for electronic structure calculations using density functional theory (DFT). Besides the density of states (DOS) and the band structure, the fine structure of absorption edges can be calculated (XANES and ELNES)



CUFOUR
(R.Schäublin)

A many-beam dynamical calculation of CTEM and CBED contrast of defects (dislocations, planar faults, interfaces) in cubic, tetragonal, and hexagonal crystals



QSTEM
(C. Koch)

Software for simulating HAADF-STEM, BF-STEM and BF-TEM images and diffraction patterns of arbitrarily large structures. Based on the multislice algorithm, includes TDS and scattering factors for atoms of arbitrary charge



Crystal Kit
(R. Kilaas, Total Resolution)

A program for building crystalline defects of various kinds, from point defects to grain boundaries and precipitates



EELS Advisor
(Gatan)

A Gatan Digital micrograph plug-in for simulating EELS spectra


 

Inline holography + quantitative image matching

IWFR
(HREM Research)

A Digital Micrograph plug-in for reconstructing the exit face wave function from a focal series of HRTEM images



FRWR
(C. Koch)

A Matlab program for reconstructing the exit face wave function from a focal series of TEM images. This software aims particularly at low resolution, where focus-dependent image distortions need to be considered.



IDIM
(G. Möbus)

A PV-wave program for quantitative matching of crystal and defect structures to HRTEM image


 

Strain mapping

GPA
(HREM Research)

GPA generates fully quantitative deformation and strain maps from standard HREM images, based on geometric phase algorithms originally developed by Martin Hytch



WGPA
(C. Koch)

WGPA generates fully quantitative deformation and strain maps from standard HREM images and exit face wave functions, based on geometric phase algorithms originally developed by Martin Hytch
