HyperSpy Workshop 2024

May 13. till May 17.

HyperSpy Workshop 2024

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 cover two packages dedicated to 4D-STEM data analysis, PyXEM and py4DSTEM, and a simulation package, abTEM.

We will have ample time for participants to discuss their own specific data analysis questions, with a dedicated “Bring your own data” session towards the end of the workshop.
