Oxford Instruments and Digital Surf announce the launch of Relate software

publication date: Jun 12, 2020
author/source: Digital Surf


For qualitative and quantitative data correlation between electron microscope spectrometry (EDS, EBSD and electron images) and atomic force microscopy

Oxford Instruments and Digital Surf, creator of the industry-standard Mountains® surface and image analysis software platform, has announced the release of Relate software for users of Oxford Instruments' leading-edge tools for materials characterization.

This software will bring great value to Oxford Instruments' users working in R&D across a wide range of academic and industrial applications including semiconductors, renewable energy, mining, metallurgy, and forensics.

Relate software lets users get more out of their data by supplying accurate, innovative tools for visualizing, analyzing and reporting, in particular:

  • Correlation of spectrometry (EDS and EBSD) data with AFM data and microscopy images with easy-to-use tools for rapid manual and semi-automated correlation of multiple images.
  • 3D and 2D visualization of composite data sets showing EDS, EBSD and EM image layers combined with topography and material properties as measured by AFM, helping to reveal the micro- and nano-characteristics of a sample.
  • Analysis of correlated quantitative data by extracting underlying data values in addition to qualitative images (e.g. x-ray counts for each element).
  • Easy report generation: data and images can be organized and published in popular formats (PDF, Word etc.)
  • Documented, interactive workflow allowing maximum flexibility and traceability during the image analysis process.

"Relate software is a highly accurate tool for correlative analysis for researchers utilizing several different instrument technologies (EM, AFM and spectrometry). Using one single software program to combine different datasets helps ensure the efficiency of analysis routines and the generation of meaningful results," said Louise Hughes, Product manager for Life Sciences, NanoAnalysis
