Mission of the Imaging Technology Group
Remote access to imaging instrumentation
What is Bugscope?
This results in the following problems …
Approach — Improved Input & Output
For a given bandwidth capacity, pick any two
Fidelity of the reconstructed image to the original source
Delay in real-time between acquisition of the image and display of the image to the remote user
The size of the image displayed to the remote user
Videocast options, cont’d
Hybrid Video Server
Project-specific Results, low bandwidth
Project-specific Results, high bandwidth
A new, more complete and more natural user interface.
Expose the majority of the controls accessible when using the ESEM directly.
Not all controls can be included
An operator is required to prepare and mount the specimen, and to activate the vacuum.
Click anywhere relative to the green overlay circle, and the stage will move in that direction.
In “TV” mode, click & hold moves smoothly in given direction.
Click & drag right mouse button left/right to increase/decrease focus distance.
Control+click & drag right mouse button left/right or up/down to adjust stigmator x,y.
Proposed Focus (same as ESEM focus)
