N-Surf is a new generation of software for analyzing and processing of images of surfaces obtained by Scanning Probe or Atomic Force Microscopes (SPM/AFMs). This application was developed for high-quality visualization and easy processing of all types of images. To date, support for Veeco/DI (NanoScope III, NanoScope IV), NT-MDT (.mdt) and MPRI (NANOTOP-205) files has been implemented.Owing to the virtual main frame and other unique features, multidocument interface allows to work easily and concurrently with a variety of images.You will enjoy freedom in manipulating different views of your document in the n - Surf environment.This application uses all modern facilities of Windows 2000/XP, such as Thumbnails, Clipboard, Float toolbars, Contexts Help and others.Superior printing quality will fit every user's requirements.The basic concept of n-Surf is presentation of all images in the form of three views, namely, 2D, Bump and 3D, each having strengths and weaknesses. However, you have freedom in choosing the most workable one to solve your specific problems.
Researchers can use a lot of facilities and processing methods offered:
Variety of filters such as Arithmetic mean, Median, Laplacian, Gaussian, High-pass, Low-pass, Sharpening, Prewitt, Scharr, Sobel, Roberts and others.
Dilate and Erode morphological operations.
Fourier transform and Autocorrelation.
Roughness analysis, Height histogram and Bearing curve.
Special operations such as Jump elimination, Flatting and Plane fitting.
This list is by no means complete and will undergo replenishment in the future. At present n-Surf is constantly under development. Therefore there is always a room to implement specific suggestions of its customers.
