HyperSpy workshop 2022

May 09. till May 13.

HyperSpy workshop 2022

This workshop is geared towards electron microscopy users who are interested in HyperSpy for their data analysis.

During this one-week workshop we will cover the basics of data handling in HyperSpy and then provide example work-flows for typical datasets that Users acquire at ePSIC. This will include spectroscopy datasets in STEM, i.e. spectrum images with EELS and / or EDXS, and also large 4D-STEM datasets acquired using the Medipix detector on E02. Machine learning toolboxes available within HyperSpy and their application on various data types will also be discussed.

We will have ample time for participants to discuss their own specific data analysis questions.
