This repository contains simulated and experimental datasets from the paper "A methodology for robust multislice ptychography". File layout This repository is structured with the following subdirectories:
  • exp-data: Raw experimental datasets, metadata and reconstruction parameters
  • sim-data: Simulated datasets, metadata and reconstruction parameters
  • code: Code for reconstruction & analysis
Metadata format 4D STEM files are provided in the EMPAD raw data format, accompanied with metadata provided in JSON format. A description of this metadata format is provided in the notebook code/data_format.ipynb, and a Python schema is provided in code/ Simulated data In addition to raw datasets + metadata, simulated datasets contain additional information. This information is summarized in the code/data_format.ipynb notebook. The supercell used for simulation is provided in the XCrysDen/XSF file format as well as the Prismatic-flavor XYZ file format. License information & acknowledements The MATLAB code provided is a modified fork of Yi Jiang's fold_slice, which is based on the PtychoShelves package developed at the Paul Scherrer Institut. In addition to the authors at PSI, the code contains work from the following authors:
  • Zhen Chen
  • Yi Jiang
  • Colin Gilgenbach
  • Michael Xu
  • Xi Chen
