System Requirements

To run SpectraFox you need the following system requirements:

  • Microsoft Windows Vista or higher (x86 or x64)
  • .NET Framework 4.5
  • 50 MB disk space
  • the amount of required system memory depends on the size of the measurement project: approx. 500 MB per 10000 files

If you do not have installed the .NET Framework, it will be installed automatically during the setup process.

SPM Manufacturer Compatibility

SpectraFox is a manufacturer independent open-source software. It is maintained by researchers who use scanning tunneling microscopes and atomic force microscopes in their daily work. Thus it contains several import routines to handle different measurement data file formats of various manufacturers.

So far, it can handle data generated by hardware of the following manufacturers:

manufacturer data type file extension
SPECS/Nanonis bias spectroscopy .dat
SPECS/Nanonis z spectroscopy .dat
SPECS/Nanonis scan images .sxm
Omicron/Matrix bias spectroscopy .*_mtrx
Omicron/Matrix z spectroscopy .*_mtrx
Omicron/Matrix scan images .*_mtrx
Createc/STMAFM bias spectroscopy .VERT
Createc/STMAFM scan images .dat
Nanotec/WSxM scan images .stp, .top, .ch1, ...
Nanotec/WSxM spectroscopy .cur
Bruker-AFM scan images .FLT
