Browser-Interactive Programs

  • Electron Microscope Simulations from Switzerland.
    On-line version, developed by Henri Jouneau, of the program EMS by Pierre Stadlemann for simulating electron microscope images, Kikuchi maps, various diffraction pattern types, and specimen atomic models. Both are sited at the "Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne".
  • HREM and surface structure facility pages in Evanston, Illinois.
    Software and links hosted by L. D. Marks at Northwestern University.
  • Interactive routines for Marc De Graef's book Intro to Conventional TEM.
    This is a newer book published in 2003 by Cambridge University Press.
  • WebEMAPS from Urbana, Illinois.
    Home of Jian-Min (Jim) Zuo's web software for simulation of electron diffraction patterns, images and structure visualization.
  • Our Live3D models in St. Louis, MO.
    Applet-based calculation/visualization with interactive fringe visibility/Kikuchi maps, crytal defects, microscope simulators, and powers-of-ten worlds.
  • Our Nano-microscopy with Jmol models in St. Louis, MO.
    Jmol-based calculation/visualation of models for comparison to real experimental HREM, SPM and SEM data.
  • University of Nottingham SPM Processing Server (broken link).
    On-Line Programs for noise reduction, tip shape analysis, aggregate and fractal analysis. Work perhaps of Phil Williams.
  • Web Logo at UC, Berkeley
    On-line programs by Gavin Crooks and others for creation of nucleic and amino acid sequence logos.
  • The 2D chemical structure plotter in Erlangen, Germany.
  • QuasiTiler 3.0 in Minneapolis MN
    Program draws Penrose tilings and their generalizations, to help you think both about high resolution microscope images of quasicrystals, and novel designs for aperiodic bathroom tile.
