Simple platform for scanning confocal microscopy and spectroscopy
MicroscoPy is a simple platform for scanning confocal microscopy and spectroscopy in Python. It is controlled entirely from the (I)Python interactive console, with the addition of a few graphic widget to control the instruments and visualise data.
The core modules are:
- hal: a simple API that makes it easy to integrate new hardware in MicroscoPy by wrapping any existing device as hal.Actuator or hal.Sensor objects.
- scan: flexible, scalable scanning routines. Multidimensional scans are build from arbitrary combinations of unidimensional scans
- keypad: Tkinter widgets to control actuators from the keyboard
- display: Tkinter widgets to display camera images and 1D spectra in real time.
MicroscoPy has only been tested in Python 2.7:
$ pip2.7 install microscopy
