Acquire Focal Series STEM

Category: Microscope & GIF
Author:
Description: Set to acquire first two signals in parallel by default (was created for a JEOL 2100F with Gatan BF/DF and a JEOL HAADF detector.) Requires a Digiscan (possibly a Digiscan 2) scan controller, but should work on any microscope that uses the Digiscan. Set your microscope to your desired starting defocus (negative, the script steps forward in focus). Run the script, and answer each dialog box. To change the number of signals acquired or signal names, edit the script. There are comments indicating the locations to edit.
Comments: Digiscan acquisition commands may be changed by Gatan, and changes in their syntax may later break this script.
Acknowledgements: Based on Dave Mitchell's Acquire Focal Series script. Robin Harmon was very helpful in providing STEM acquisition commands.
