Serves for visualizing electron tomography data. Tomviz can utilize the large quantities of memory and processing resources required to render, manipulate, and analyze voluminous 3D tomograms. It provides a graphical user interface (GUI) where objects can be rendered as shaded contours or volumetric projections. This tool also offers a set of functions such as multiple datasets, colormaps, and other visualization settings.
Allows analysis of force microscopy recording like images or force curves. AtomicJ measures Young’s modulus, adhesion force, sample height and transition indentation. Users can produce two-dimensional maps of the mechanical properties and three-dimensional stacks. This software includes several different contacts models such as models for thin and hyperelastic samples, for blunt tips, the exact model for the sphere and models of adhesive contact.
Calculates the persistence length of polymer chains and derivation of their axial elastic modulus. Easyworm is designed to work with images of individual polymer chains taken by atomic force microscopy and can also serve for electron microscopy, epifluorescence, or simple contrast-phase optical microscopy images. It is based on the standard method of bootstrap with replacement to estimate uncertainties in persistence lengths.
Assists users in analyzing complex systems. AFMech Suite is a software that investigates biological specimens where heterogeneity hinder a quantitative characterization, through three steps: (1) precise atomic force microscope (AFM) calibration, (2) nano-indentation in force volume mode, and (3) array of finite element simulations built from AFM indentation events. This method carries out nanomechanical characterization of heterogeneous composites systems from hydrogels with inclusions.
