In-Situ EM Data Processing Tutorial Videos (Gatan Microscopy Suite: GMS 3)
A series of video tutorials demonstrating how to use Gatan’s IS player, part of GMS 3 (Gatan Microscopy Suite) software for TEM/SEM. Handle large in-situ datasets effectively, reduce file size, export videos and more.
Processing In-Situ Data
The success of in-situ experiments depends not just on the experimental design but also on converting vast quantities of raw data into publication-quality results.
Gatan’s IS Player is a powerful set of data processing tools to help you focus on key results. It’s included in Gatan Microscopy Suite (GMS). IS Player makes it easy to perform tasks such as:
- Opening and playing back large in-situ datasets.
- Reducing data size.
- Applying drift correction.
- Filtering datasets with data or alignment filters.
- Saving data as video.
Gatan Microscope Suite (GMS 3)
IS Player is part of GMS 3, which is Gatan’s software package for electron microscope experiment control and analysis.
- Guided workflow – Takes you through experiment set-up, execution and analysis.
- User-friendly workspace – To help you manage and organise data.
- EELS routines – Easy-to-use, model-based EELS analysis for high quality results.
- For experienced users – Complete control with DigitalMicrograph scripting.
This series of quick tutorial videos is designed to help you use IS Player and take full advantage of the comprehensive in-situ platform that comes with Gatan in-situ hardware and software. The tutorials were put together by Ben Miller, In-Situ Applications Scientist at Gatan.
