The CalcImage "Hyper-Cursor" feature now works better than ever- on-line or off-line!  It's available from this menu



You can now correlate all your images and maps based on stage coordinates of, for example, your x-ray maps, phase classification and BSE images as your move the mouse!



What is really fancy about this "Hyper-Cursor" feature is that it is *not* dependent on the image stage extents or magnification, because the cursor position is tied to the actual stage position of every pixel in every image.

So as long as the images were all acquired in the same sample exchange, they can all be correlated by actual stage position.

The latest version of CalcImage (v. 10.1.8, 12/15/2013), nicely now handles oxides and excess oxygen output to Surfer.

See attached example of Magnetite analysis using polygon extraction to avoid an inclusion.

And also an example of an oxide element by difference, although the Ce2O3 in this monazite composition is just there for the general matrix correction and assumes no Nd, Sm, etc in the composition. This assumption has been tested and surprisingly, does work well for the U, Th, Pb, Y and La matrix corrections as seen here in some point analyses:

CalcImage now supports output for all quant types (detection limits, analytical sensitivity, log wt.%, mineral end members and U-Th-Pb chem age calculations), for polygon, slice and strip operations.



See attached for examples.

Here's another example (attached) using the U-Th-U age with a polygon extraction to get a more accurate average and variance.

Note that the inclusion was not included in the calculation, just the area inside the polygon!

Also the output was generated completely automatically, no manual modifications to the graphical objects!

A new feature if your match database (e.g., DHZ.MDB) contains accurate densities for each composition (available in v. 10.1.9 of PFE), is the Mass% for each phase as shown here in this output from CalcImage of a field of view of Mt St. Helens basalt.

I think I forgot to describe our CalcImage "strip averaging" of intensity or quant maps using horizontal or vertical strips in um units.

This means the user can take an x-ray map and specify the application average the pixel rows or pixel columns to obtain an average of the sample either vertically or horizontally as seen here:

One can now calculate and output statistics for all raw and/or quant x-ray maps with a couple of mouse clicks using this new menu:


Note the Project | Output Image Statistics For menu names have now been modified slightly from what you see above...

Here is an example of elemental results for a magnetite standard x-ray map. Note that the average measured and excess oxygen are both properly output:



And here is an example of calculating the average detection limit for an alloy x-ray map using a short (200 msec, 30 nA) dwell time per pixel:



I should also mention that at this point it would be *very easy* to add additional image statistics calculations if there are any that you all think would be useful!

I've managed to implement the "aggregate" photon method into CalcImage for all quant operations.

This is response to Aoife McFadden's report here:

http://probesoftware.com/smf/index.php?topic=393.0

and Anette von der Handt's report here:

http://probesoftware.com/smf/index.php?topic=383.0

that this feature seemed to be missing and indeed it was (previously one could only apply the "aggregate" photon method to point analyses in Probe for EPMA, but now one can apply this "aggregate" method for improving sensitivity in CalcImage for x-ray maps!    8)

Using Aoife's data as an example here is a comparison of the S and Sr background intensity maps with and without the aggregate option applied to the same data (please note that I'm only showing the single spectro 1 for the "normal" quant as that is the channel everything gets "aggregated" to when the aggregate method is applied). This is simply to demonstrate that the aggregated background intensity pixels are higher in intensity because they are summed at the photon level).

For Sr la:



For S Ka:



I think you will also agree that the "aggregated" background intensity maps (on the right side) appear to be less noisy (and of course they should!).

And here are the calculated 3 sigma detection limits (for just the Sr La) to show that the detection limits really are better for the "aggregated" intensities:



Finally here is a page from the presentation output for the normal quant:



and here is the single page output for the "aggregated" photon intensities quantified:



I think everyone will agree that the "aggregated" quant maps for Sr and S are better sensitivity both visually and numerically (as seen by comparing the range of z values in the color scale bar).

I've managed to implement the "aggregate" photon method into CalcImage for all quant operations.

I just realized that the above post "starts in the middle", so I should explain a little first.  Here is Aoife's elemental setup in PFE for her probe run:

Last (Current) On and Off Peak Count Times:
ELEM:     S ka    S ka    S ka    S ka    S ka   Ca ka   Sr la   Sr la   Sr la   Sr la
BGD:       MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN
BGDS:      MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN     MAN
SPEC:        1       2       3       4       5       3       1       2       4       5
CRYST:    LPET     PET    LPET    LPET    LPET    LPET    LPET     PET    LPET    LPET
ORDER:       1       1       1       1       1       2       2       2       2       2
ONTIM:   15.00   15.00   15.00   15.00   15.00   15.00   15.00   15.00   15.00   15.00


So there are 5 spectrometers tuned to S Ka, one for Ca Ka and 4 for Sr La. Now here is her data calculated for each spectrometer (normal analysis with totals image not shown):



Now we simply turn on the "aggregate intensity" feature as seen here:



And now, here is her same data, but this time re-calculated with the "aggregate" intensity feature (again without the totals image):

This is a nice new feature in CalcImage that allows one to output all of the currently open images to Grapher for presentation output. Start by opening only the images you want to export using the Project | Open Images For Current Project or File | Open GRD File menus.

Then click the new Window | Output The Currently Displayed Images menu as seen here:



This nice thing is one can display all sorts of data types all at once, for example this one of Mo atomic%, weight%, analytical sensitivity and detections limits:



Note this works for any number of images displayed, as the Surfer script will auto-generate the additional pages as necessary.

When we get Thermo and Bruker on board with this:

http://probesoftware.com/smf/index.php?topic=400.msg2174#msg2174

Then I will enable these controls in CalcImage for true, full featured EDS-Si and WDS quant integration:



Cool!

Did you know that you can also perform phase classification in CalcImage using lists of quantitative analysis points from Probe for EPMA using this menu?



Then simply import the export file into CalcImage using this menu:



The resulting phase numbers are listed in the NK column. Furthermore you can "pre-process" quantitative image data from CalcImage in this window to extract ranges based on the sum of each pixel (to remove pixels of epoxy, etc) as seen here:



I'm bumping this forward to remind you all that you can perform kmeans clustering on random points exported from PFE for both WDS *and* EDS elements now.  All data types too- raw, net intensities, elemental wt%, atomic, oxide, detection limits, log wt%, etc. etc.
