Abstract In a recent publication, we investigated the prospect of measuring the outer three-dimensional (3D) shapes of nano-scale atom probe specimens from tilt-series of images collected in the transmission electron microscope. For this purpose alone, an algorithm and simplified reconstruction theory were developed to circumvent issues that arise in commercial “back-projection” computations in this context. In our approach, we give up the difficult task of computing the complete 3D continuum structur... Title of program: STOMO version 2 Catalogue Id: AEFS_v2_0 Nature of problem A local electron tomography algorithm of specimens for which conventional back projection may fail and or data for which there is a limited angular range (which would otherwise cause significant 'missing-wedge' artefacts). The algorithm does not solve the tomography back projection problem but rather locally reconstructs the 3D morphology of surfaces defined by varied scattering densities.
