A python package for working with crystal orientations in transmission electron microscopy

Project description

pycotem

PyPI

pycotem is a python package for working with crystal orientations in transmission electron microscopy. It provides 6 GUI tools to:

  • determine orientation from diffraction patterns: diffraction

  • determine orientation from Kikuchi patterns: kikuchi

  • work with stereographic projections: stereoproj

  • determine interface normal and direction from images: interface

  • determine orientation relationship and misorientation between two crystals: misorientation

  • display crystal projection on a plane and draw dichromatic patterns: crystal

Getting Started

Prerequisites

pycotem relies on python3 with numpy, pillow, matplotlib and pyqt5 (for GUI) packages.

Installing and running

pycotem can be installed with pip: pip3 install pycotem Run python3 -m pycotem.xxxx for the different tools: stereoproj, diffraction, kikuchi,misorientation,interface and crystal.

Examples

Image files and setting parameters are provided in the test directory in the github repository for testing diffraction, interface and kikuchi.
