iSpectra: A Toolbox for the Analysis of Spectral Images recorded on SEM-EDS systems

iSpectra is an open toolbox for the analysis of spectral images (SI's) recorded on scanning electron microscopes (SEM's), equipped with energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) systems for chemical analysis. iSpectra provides various tools for visualising chemical variability within a SI but is primarily written to create true phase maps, rather than more commonly used elemental x-ray distribution maps. iSpectra imports SI's in Lispix format and exports cumulative phase spectra in industry standard EMSA format along with graphical output. iSpectra allows to apply a variety of IGOR's built-in image processing algorithms to groups of pixels with similar spectral content for optimising pixel-to-phase assignments.

The package contains sample data and a comprehensive manual. For more information on the package content see the READ ME file.
