  • Automation in ultrafast electron microscopy

Technology Overview

Prof. David Flannigan's research group at the University of Minnesota have developed UEMtomaton: software modules for enabling communication between an optical delay stage and a digital camera mounted on an electron microscope. The software enables automation of image acquisition with ultrafast electron microscopes through user-defined parameters. This approach is simple, robust and portable for machines using the same equipment. Using this automation software will reduce experiment time, manual intervention, and user error.
