SEM automation guidelines for small script development: evaluation

By Wouter Arts - Jul 26, 2018

Scripts are small automated software tools that can help a scanning electron microscope (SEM) user work more efficiently In my previous two blogs, I wrote about image acquisition and analysis with the Phenom Programming Interface (PPI). In this blog I will explain how we can use the physical properties we obtained in the last blog in the evaluation step.

Scripts are small automated software tools that can help a scanning electron microscope (SEM) user with their work. In my previous blog I wrote about how SEM images can be acquired with the Phenom Programming Interface (PPI) using a small script. In this blog I will explain how to extract physical properties from those SEM images.

Guidelines for small script development: image acquisition

By Wouter Arts - May 24, 2018

Scripts are small software tools that help a Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) operator in their daily work. It can be used to automate a repetitive task, to scan large areas quickly, or to obtain a higher repeatability between measurements. To do this a software script must be developed. In this blog we will give guidelines how to develop a small script.

How to create custom software solutions for the Phenom desktop SEM

By Wouter Arts - Apr 12, 2018

In many cases, the Phenom SEM is used in industrial and academical applications that require repetitive work, such as acquiring a set of images at pre-set locations. In other cases, it is necessary to scan the entire surface of a sample to find a single particle and record its location and dimensions. This kind of workflow can be automated to increase not only throughput but also efficiency and accuracy. Furthermore, because automated scripts always follow the exact same procedure, the results become more repeatable, and the subjective human interpretation is removed.

In this, and many other cases, the Phenom Programming Interface (PPI) can be used to automate this work. In this blog we explain what PPI is and how it can be used to integrate the Phenom SEM into your workflow.
