What’s inside MountainsLab®

Data confluence
  • Bring together data from multiple instruments, speed up analysis by using one single software program and ensure you are generating meaningful results from your data
  • Load live documents and analyses created by other Mountains® users (20,000+ community worldwide)
  • Process data from virtually any type of surface and image analysis instrument (50+ instrument manufacturers use Mountains ®)
Compatible with any instrument
  • Process data from 2D and 3D profilometers, scanning electron microscopes (SEM), scanning probe microscopes (SPM)/atomic force microscopes (AFM) and spectroscopic techniques
  • Load hundreds of file formats covering profiles, surfaces, 3D (tomography) and 2D images, multi-channel files, force curves, hyperspectral images, multichannel cubes, etc.
Correlative analysis
  • Perform correlative analysis quickly and easily
  • Use the MountainsLab® colocalization feature to combine and overlay images and other data from different instruments
  • Access advanced rendering options including image correction, color mixing and transparency to highlight image features
Surface texture analysis
  • Benefit from Digital Surf’s 30+ year expertise in surface metrology
  • Use application-specific tools for analyzing surface texture
  • Access advanced filters, parameters and other tools for profiles, surfaces and series of data
Advanced particle analysis
  • Detect and quantify particles, pores, grains and other image features of any shape and size on any surface and from any instrument
  • Benefit from application-oriented segmentation techniques dedicated to your instrument type (profiler, SEM-SE, SEM-BSE, multichannel data etc.)
  • Group particles into classes based on characteristics
  • Generate statistics and graphics (scatter plot, box plot, control chart etc.)
Generate statistics
  • Generate statistics for static or dynamic data populations
  • Create statistics reports and let MountainsLab® detect and update data automatically
  • Graphically data by displaying control charts, histograms, scatter plots and more
Advanced contour analysis
  • Automatically generate dimensions of profiles
  • Compare profiles with CAD data in DXF format or user-defined nominal form
  • Graphically display form deviations
Force spectroscopy
  • Analyze force curves and force volume
  • Detect adhesion force, apply Wormlike chain (WLC) models for protein unfolding, generate Young’s Modulus map etc.
Data processing for spectroscopic techniques
  • Visualize and analyze spectral maps from Raman, cathodoluminescence & photoluminescence techniques
  • Visualize & analyze hyperspectral images
  • Correlate data from spectroscopy with data and images from other instruments (AFM, SEM etc.) including topography data if available
  • Load multichannel cubes of compositional data (“chemical” cubes)
  • Carry out particle analysis
SEM image colorization
  • Add color to objects in SEM images in just a few clicks
  • Automatic object detection
  • Save time compared with using photo editing software
3D SEM image reconstruction
  • Generate 3D surface topography from two successive tilted scans of your sample or 4 images scanned by a 4-quadrant detector
  • Get approximate 3D rendering from a single image
  • All in a matter of seconds
Learn & teach
  • Access tutorials and ready-to-use templates adapted to each different instrument type
  • Easily teach new colleagues about surface and image analysis routines using illustrated and commented templates
