Welcome to Atomap’s documentation!

News

2017-09-28: New functionality and improved documentation in development version. Functionality for generating testdata have now been added. See the development repository for some simple examples. The documentation for some functions have also been documented better. As always, some bugs are also fixed!

2017-07-03: version 0.0.8 released! New features: ability to process dumbbell structures, fitting of multiple 2D Gaussians at the same time, improved background subtraction during 2D Gaussian fitting, and processing of nanoparticles.

About Atomap

Atomap is a Python library for analysing atomic resolution scanning transmission electron microscopy images. It relies in fitting 2-D Gaussian functions to every atomic column in an image, and automatically find all major symmetry axes. The full procedure is explained in the article Atomap: a new software tool for the automated analysis of atomic resolution images using two-dimensional Gaussian fitting.

Instructions on how to install Atomap are found in the Installing guide.

There is a Tutorial on how to use Atomap.

The source code is found in the GitLab repository.

Atomap is under development and is in alpha, so bugs and errors can be expected. Bug reports and feature requests are welcome on the issue tracker.

Atomap is available under the GNU GPL v3 license.

If you publish scientific articles using Atomap, please consider citing the article Atomap: a new software tool for the automated analysis of atomic resolution images using two-dimensional Gaussian fitting.
