Tools for measuring thickness of thin film layers from simulated images.
To read a grf file into a cube: use
File / File utilities / Cerius .grf / Show file as a cube
Update-vv-plot-files! Works on the mlx default read directory.
For all .grf files in that directory that DONT have
text plot files for the vertical variance of the
first image and for the whole cube sum images:
1) Reads the grf file into a cube.
2) Saves the text file for a plot for the
vertical variances for the 1st and sum images.
The file names are <image-file-name>-vv-1st.txt, and
These plot files can be read in and examined using
***Buttons*** / Profiles / Other Plots / Read as collumns.
Plot series through cube! Generates a separate plot for each image in the
cube. Plots are vertical variances.
To tile these plots, make one of them sufficiently small, resize the
others using **Profiles** / Arrange / Size plots, then
**Profiles** / Arrange / Tile plots. (You don't need to select an image
in the **Profiles** button window, or turn on the profile line in order to use
the 'Arrange' and 'Other Plots' functions.)
Width 01 Chart from plot files ! Prints the original grf image file name and
the width measurement
for each -1st or -sum text file in the default read directory. Prints to the
text output window, from which measurements can be cut and pasted into Excel
or whatever. Tabs separate the collumns.
Show width on plot! Displays a pink band on a plot - indicating the width
found by this algorithm.
Will not work for plots read in as 'other plots / read as collumns' 9/5/2002
Note about the width:
Here is a sample of width mmts from the sum images:
The -10 clearly is a goof, and this can be caught early on in the width
measurement. But the algorithm needs a better starting point to search.
At the moment, it starts in the middle of the plot, and I think the right
place for the gs118-143 sum plot should be slightly off center. Anyway,
the other widths should be OK, as you can see from the graphics.
The width could be measured from the sides of the peaks - maybe with more
