Analog & Digital Image Analysis

Apart from the capabilities that are part of the specific microscopes, the Center offers dedicated image analysis software packages like MacTempas image simulation software for calculation of high resolution TEM images, diffraction patterns, and phase contrast transfer functions. Another program Cerius2 with such capabilities is available through the Laboratory for Molecular Simulation (http://www.chem.tamu.edu/LMS/). Other TEM image analysis/processing software suites include:

  • EMAN, IMAGIC, CCP4, CRISP and MRC
  • FEI Amira

We are also equipped with a laser-powered optical bench for image analysis and reconstruction, and two film scanners for digitizing archived TEM negatives. Detailed instructions for the Epson flatbed scanner can be downloaded here.
