Project description

LiberTEM-live is an extension module for LiberTEM that allows live data processing.

LiberTEM user-defined functions (UDFs) are designed to work without modification on both offline data and live data streams. That means all LiberTEM applications and LiberTEM-based modules can work with all supported detectors in LiberTEM-live.


The short version to install into an existing LiberTEM environment:

(libertem) $ python -m pip install "libertem-live"

See the LiberTEM installation instructions for more details on installing LiberTEM.


  • Quantum Detectors Merlin

  • DECTRIS EIGER2-based

  • Amsterdam Scientific Instruments CheeTah TPX3

See the documentation for details.

Support for the Gatan K2 IS, ASI MPX3, and X-Spectrum cameras is currently under development.
