Agilent Technologies, Inc. offers Pico Image, a modular atomic force microscope (AFM) imaging and analysis software package that analyzes image data and generates dynamic, highly-detailed surface analysis reports. Pico Image is integrated into the PicoView software platform for the company’s line of AFMs, including the 5400 and 5500.
Each Pico Image analysis document consists of a set of frames containing surfaces, profiles extracted from surfaces, the results of applying filters and other operators, analytical studies, and 2D and 3D parameters that conform to international standards. Real-time 3D imaging provides excellent visualization, according to Agilent. Videos of flight paths over a surface can also be integrated into Pico Image presentations.
Pico Image contains three performance levels, offering feature sets that meet the needs of basic, advanced, and expert users. Functions include the ability to convert a surface into a series of profiles, compute the similarity of different surfaces, generate sub-surfaces, and perform fractal analysis. Particle analysis and statistics options are also offered. Standalone and network licenses are available.
