Real-space post-processing correction of thermal drift and piezoelectric actuator nonlinearities in scanning tunneling microscope images.
A real-space method to correct distortion due to thermal drift and piezoelectric actuator nonlinearities on scanning tunneling microscope images using Matlab is developed, which allows defects, domain boundaries, and step edges to be excluded with a spatial mask.
Structural studies of carbons by neutron and x-ray scattering
The various techniques that are used to determine the structural features by experimental means and how the data are processed to give the required information in a suitable form for detailed analysis by computer simulation are reviewed.

Computer vision distortion correction of scanning probe microscopy images
An innovative computer-vision-based distortion correction algorithm is presented for offline processing of functional SPM measurements, allowing two images to be directly overlaid with minimal error – thus correlating position with time evolution and local functionality.


Scanning tunneling microscope calibration and reconstruction of real image: Drift and slope elimination
Drift, slope of sample, and indeterminate sensitivity of piezoceramics are considered as the origin of the linear scanning tunneling microscope (STM) image distortions. A special algorithm of STM
Simplified drift characterization in scanning probe microscopes using a simple two-point method
A very simple and rapid method of drift evaluation, by monitoring two points in the field of view, is proposed. This method can be used by all analysts and requires no special sample or software
Thermal drift study on different commercial scanning probe microscopes during the initial warming-up phase
Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) allows surface topography imaging with the highest resolution, as a result of accurate actuation combined with the sharpness of tips. The scanning process is
Modeling the hysteresis of a scanning probe microscope
Most scanning probe microscopes use piezoelectric actuators in open loop configurations. Therefore a major problem related to these instruments is the image distortion due to the hysteresis effect of
A simple method for preparing calibration standards for the three working axes of scanning probe microscope piezo scanners

Drift elimination in the calibration of scanning probe microscopes
Calibration of scanning probe microscopes (SPM) for atomic (molecular) resolution scans can be carried out on crystalline surfaces. However, SPM scans with atomic resolution are often affected by
Automatic drift elimination in probe microscope images based on techniques of counter-scanning and topography feature recognition
An experimentally proved method for the automatic correction of drift-distorted surface topography obtained with a scanning probe microscope (SPM) is suggested. Drift-produced distortions are
Automatic lateral calibration of tunneling microscope scanners
A practical method is described to find automatically the calibration coefficients and residual nonorthogonality of a tunneling microscope scanner. As initial data, the coordinates of three atoms
