AutoScript TEM Software scripting environment

Thermo Scientific AutoScript TEM Software is a scripting environment combining a TEM-specific Python API with the Python editor. Thermo Scientific software packages for electron/ion microscopy, such as Maps Software and Tomography Software for automation and for mapping, are great for making collection of standard information easy. However, industrial automation and fundamental research often require advanced techniques for imaging and analysis that cannot be covered in the scope of general purpose software. AutoScript TEM Software provides access to the microscope controls in a Python environment to define your application tailored to the question at hand.

Automated electron microscopy workflows

AutoScript TEM Software for TEM is the customization toolkit tor transmission electron microscopes. Built around Python, it provides you the power to automate workflows and associated processing pipelines built to solve specific research questions.

AutoScript TEM Software:

  • Provides a direct link between research needs and microscope automation
  • Enables improved reproducibility and accuracy
  • Focuses time on the microscope for higher throughput
  • Empowers new scientific results

 


Key features

 

Automated electron microscopy and TEM imaging

 

Integrated IDE

An integrated development environment (IDE) makes it easy to get up and running with AutoScript TEM Software. Object browsing and syntax tools with auto completion are all included to ensure a rich user experience and rapid, consistent scripting framework.

Python

Harness the power of your microscope using the most popular scientific programming language. AutoScript TEM Software is built on Python 3.5 and includes a number of pre-installed libraries for scientific computing, data analysis, data visualization, image processing, and machine learning.

Fundamental Materials Research

Novel materials are investigated at increasingly smaller scales for maximum control of their physical and chemical properties. Electron microscopy provides researchers with key insight into a wide variety of material characteristics at the micro- to nano-scale.

 


Techniques

3D Materials Characterization

Development of materials often requires multi-scale 3D characterization. DualBeam instruments enable serial sectioning of large volumes and subsequent SEM imaging at nanometer scale, which can be processed into high-quality 3D reconstructions of the sample.

Multi-scale analysis

Novel materials must be analyzed at ever higher resolution while retaining the larger context of the sample. Multi-scale analysis allows for the correlation of various imaging tools and modalities such as X-ray microCT, DualBeam, Laser PFIB, SEM and TEM.
