Library for processing scanning transmission electron microscopy data acquired using a pixelated detector

Project description



Webpage (development version):

Python library for analysing pixelated scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) datasets. Pixelated STEM is using a 2D detector to image the convergent beam electron pattern generated by the electron beam after passing through a material.

The library has implemented several common functions used with these types of datasets, like radial integration and center of mass. These are implemented as HyperSpy-type signals, where these new signals both inherit the old methods and add many new ones.


The easiest way is installing using with pip:

pip3 install pixstem


import numpy as np
import pixstem.api as ps
s = ps.PixelatedSTEM(np.random.random(size=(5, 5, 10, 10)))
s_r = s.radial_integration()
