tomviz, the excellent software suite for 3D data visualization, received another upgrade. Check out the new features!
Check out the latest Tomviz release, #OpenSource 3D tomography for materials science with a reproducible data pipeline. Lots of bug fixes, new features, improved installers, new support for macOS retinal resolution displays, and more

Looking for advanced tomography data to test an algorithm? Look no further!
We've made 3D nanomaterial data public and open:

"Electron tomography in materials science has flourished with the demand to characterize nanoscale materials in three dimensions (3D). Access to experimental data is vital for developing and validating reconstruction methods that improve resolution and reduce radiation dose requirements. The datasets represent the current limits of experimental technique, are of high quality, and contain materials with structural complexity..."

A great program for 3D visualization of tomography data getting even better. Check out the newest release of tomviz.
Check out the latest release of tomviz, now with even more tools to enable reconstruction of your data, some experimental support for ITK, and much more. We also hosted a small hackathon at +Kitware headquarters, it was great to spend the day hacking with our collaborators from +Cornell University!

A review article I co-authored with +Gang Ren​ and published in Advanced Materials on electron tomography arrived today. Its nice to see an article in print after years of only receiving digital copies.

Our paper on 3D tomography with 19 picometer precision was published today in Nature Materials. We find the 3D coordinates of thousands of atoms, identify a point defect and calculate the full 3D strain tensor. This work pushes the forefront of 3D materials analysis.

We just published a new paper on atomic resolution electron tomography in Nature Materials. This is a big step forward in the capabilities of 3D imaging at the atomic scale. I hope you're happy Dr. Feynman.

A nice update (0.6.0) to the opensource 3D visualization platform called Tomviz was released recently. After some testing I really like the improvements in features and stability. Tomviz is highly recommended for 3D tomography visualization!
Check out the latest release of tomviz, this post highlights major new features such as improved rendering, support for more file formats, and improvements that facilitate sharing analysis work flows.

Our method for 3D reconstruction of nanoparticles in liquid solution using Graphene (named SINGLE) was also written up in EETimes.

Recent work of mine in collaboration with +Jungwon Park, +hans elmlund and many others was recently published in Science. We were successful in reconstructing the shape of Pt nanoparticles at atomic-scale resolution in liquid. We combined three state-of-the-art techniques (sample preparation, TEM imaging and processing) to accomplish this. Our technique (called SINGLE) should open up new ways to image the 3D structure of very small structures in their native environment (like liquids) that was previously impossible.

If you want to know where I work you can check out this webcast. TEAM I at NCEM will be one of the facilities showcased. The microscope is being fixed and in pieces right now, but it should be cool to see.
