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



Here are few examples of image simulations with the Dr. Probe software package. You can follow these examples step by step in order to learn how to use the software. The examples may also serve as templates for your own simulations.

Further examples and scientific results obtained by applying Dr. Probe can be found in the publication list given below.
