AXON Synchronicity

Current Version: 10.6.1

AXON Synchronicity v10.6.1 Product Release Notes
June 17th, 2022

Protochips is excited to introduce AXON Synchronicity v 10.6.1, now supporting the AXON Dose module (available through a separate license) with capabilities including:

What’s in Version 10.6.1

    What’s New:
    • New dose calibration workflow within Dose (Dose module only) where beam current and beam area are calibrated for each microscope operating condition. These semi-automated processes utilize the Dose holder to quickly take, save and reference measurements.
    • New sample management workflow within Dose (Dose module only) where a low dose level, high dose level and high dose rate are established for each sample.
    • New dose monitoring workflow within Dose (Dose module only) where indicators report the dose rate and cumulative dose for each image against sample thresholds.
    • New dose layer overlay option, visually show cumulative dose levels on the image. (Dose module only)
    • New dose navigation workflow within Dose (Dose module only) with a broad view of the cumulative dose history and easy click-to-center navigation to un-dosed or previously dosed sample regions. A beam blank / un-blank control within dose navigation helps with low dose workflows.
    • New FFT rectangle draw tool, selected area statistics for peak spatial frequency, intensity sum, intensity min/max/median/mean.
    • New metadata parameters for dose rate (Dose module only), min/max/median/mean cumulative dose (Dose module only), incremental dose (Dose module only), and dose x/y position (Dose module only)
    • New metadata parameters for beam current (Dose module only) and dose area (Dose module only).
    • New metadata parameters for raw pixel sum, camera conversion current (Dose module only), and camera conversion dose rate (Dose module only).
    • New metadata parameters for condenser lens settings and condenser lens configuration.
    • New metadata parameters for monochromator gun lens setting.
    • New metadata parameter for CFEG anode targets and emission current.

    What’s Improved:
    • Improved Data View axis plot scaling, ignoring invalid values.
    • Live, runtime alerts no longer require user action with text displayed on the image and through lower-right “toast” notifications, detailing when and why images are not saved.
    • License removal and activation now requires administrator privileges.
    • Updated FFT max radial sum plot tooltip, detailing spatial frequency when hovering over the plot.

    What’s Fixed:
    • JEOL convergence angle now includes JEOL Alpha.
    • Fixed stage movement timeouts related to microscope stage errors.
    • Fixed random microscope disconnections and delays in the raw image saving.
    • Fixed Synchronicity application crash when the same data is plotted twice in the Data View.

June 17th, 2022

Protochips is excited to introduce AXON Studio v10.6.1, which brings a variety of new features, improvements, and bug fixes to the AXON software package. Any users running a prior version of AXON Studio with an active license are eligible for this free update. V10.6.1 is the first AXON Studio version that supports Dose workflows and data bringing a new layer of analysis to S/TEM.

What’s in Version 10.6.1

    What’s New:
    • New AXON Studio Toolbox rectangle draw tool with selected area statistics for min/max/median/mean pixel value, physical area, physical x/y length, pixel x/y length and min/max/median/mean dose (Dose libraries only).
    • New AXON Studio Toolbox line draw tool with statistics for min/max/median/mean pixel value, angle, physical length, pixel length and min/max/median/mean dose (Dose libraries only).
    • New AXON Studio Toolbox histogram plots for whole image, and selected rectangles.
    • New AXON Studio Toolbox pixel intensity vs. linear distance plots for line draw tool.
    • New FFT rectangle draw tool, selected area statistics for peak spatial frequency, intensity sum, intensity min/max/median/mean.
    • New image tooltip, image pixel intensity value and cumulative dose value (Dose libraries only) reported on mouse hover over the image.
    • New sample management workflow within Dose (Dose libraries only) where a low dose level, high dose level and high dose rate are established for each sample.
    • New dose monitoring workflow within Dose (Dose libraries only) where indicators report the dose rate and cumulative dose for each image against sample thresholds.
    • New dose layer overlay option, visually show cumulative dose levels on the image. (Dose libraries only)
    • New publishing option to annotate dose layer in image stacks and color videos. (Dose libraries only)
    • New metadata parameters for dose rate (Dose libraries only), min/max/median/mean cumulative dose (Dose libraries only), incremental dose (Dose libraries only), and dose x/y position (Dose libraries only)
    • New metadata parameters for beam current (Dose libraries only) and dose area (Dose libraries only).
    • New metadata parameters for raw pixel sum, camera conversion current (Dose libraries only), and camera conversion dose rate (Dose libraries only).
    • New metadata parameters for condenser lens settings and condenser lens configuration.
    • New metadata parameters for monochromator gun lens setting.
    • New metadata parameter for CFEG anode targets and emission current.

    What’s Improved:
    • Faster timeline scrubbing and image navigation on larger libraries.
    • Larger preview image when hovering over the timeline.
    • Updated FFT max radial sum plot tooltip, detailing spatial frequency when hovering over the plot.
    • Improved Repair Library process that automatically scans for missing images in the library and prompts a repair detailing the necessary fixes.

    What’s Fixed:
    • Fixed AXON Studio crashes due to missing images through new repair library function.
    • Added units to image acquisition rate data.
    • Fixed bug in the tagging filter after refresh.
    • Fixed image overlay font option on smaller resolution monitors
