Dr. Probe - High-resolution (S)TEM image simulation software



This software package has been developed by Juri Barthel and Lothar Houben at the Forschungszentrum Juelich GmbH and the RWTH Aachen University.

The majority of the core code is written in Fortran 90 for Intel Fortran Compilers v11.1 (Win), v16.0 (Linux), v(18.0) Mac, the tools BuildCell and CellMuncher are Perl scripts, and the Dr. Probe graphical user interface is written in Microsoft Visual C++ (2010). The code will be migrated to new compiler versions soon. The command-line tools and some internal code parts of the Dr. Probe user interface tool will than also be available on GitHub.

J. Barthel wants to acknowledge funding by the German Research Foundation (DFG) within the core facilities initiative, grant number MA 1280/40-1.
