What’s inside MountainsSPIP®

Advanced particle analysis

Easily detect and quantify features of any shape and size. Quantify 70+ characteristics (height, area, volume, perimeter etc.) for the whole sample or individual particles.

Force spectroscopy

View, process and analyze force curves and force volume images. Correct data, create interactive parameter maps and manage large collections of curves.

Correlative analysis

Combine SPM images with data from other instruments (SEMs, 3D optical microscopes, confocal microsopes etc.) to perform correlative analysis.

Multi-channel imaging & analysis

Handle multi-channel files. Visualize different layers in 3D at the touch of a button. Apply analysis to a single layer or to all layers. Extract multi-layer cross-sections.

High compatibility

Process data from any brand or type of scanning probe microscope including atomic force microscopy (AFM), STM, SNOM etc. Open over 170 file formats.

Data correction & normalization

Get your data ready for analysis with correction, normalization & denoising tools. Remove anomalous scan lines and isolated artifacts.

Lateral calibration

Lateral calibration: automatically calculate correction parameters (for example using a calibration standard) then apply them to measured data.

Tip deconvolution

Correct image distortion due to tip convolution. Simulate and reconstruct tip geometry and re-use it for the deconvolution of other measured data.

Surface texture analysis

Characterize surface texture characterization in accordance with international standards. Apply advanced ISO 16610 filtering techniques and ISO 25178 3D parameters.
