Atom Probe Workbench

About the Atom Probe Workbench

Research Data Australia DOI record

The Atom Probe Workbench (APW) is a desktop specifically designed to provide the computational tools that are necessary to analyse data from an Atom Probe Microscope (APM). APMs are used to characterise the chemistry and 3D structure of materials (such as metals, alloys, semiconductors, superconductors, ceramics) at the atomic scale.

The APM runs on Linux (CentOS version 6.4) virtual machines in the NeCTAR cloud. This workbench was developed as one of four application drivers of the Nectar Characterisation Virtual Laboratory (CVL) project: Energy Materials - Atom Probe.

The Atom Probe Workbench includes a suite of individual atom probe analysis tools (both open and closed source) developed by Atom Probe researchers around the world. The APW also contains a collection of customised open source programs such as Galaxy (a workflow engine), MyTardis (data sharing, usage tracking, citation reporting), and other command-line scripts (usage reporting). These open source programs provide additional functionality to allow a researcher to properly track and monitor the use of intellectual property.
