  • Re: reading files and headers datas

    \@Sens. DeflSens: V 43.2132 nm/V is the 'soft scale' for the vertical axis of the force plot. The soft scale allows conversion between raw units in Volts and metric units. \@Sens. Zscan: V 12.50 nm/V is the 'soft scale' for the horizontal axis of the force plot. You can find more information...

  • Re: Understanding raw data in header of force curve files

    Hi Josep, You are on the right track. The scaling factor is just the product of the ZsensSens and the Zscale value in parenthesis. For example \@Sens. ZsensSens: V 163.0064 nm/V ... \@4:Z scale: V [Sens. ZsensSens] (0.0003750000 V/LSB) 5.966755 V ... the scaling factor for the Height Sensor channel would...

  • Re: Is there any fast way export multiple curves out of the point and shoot .mca files into Igor or Origin?

    Jonathan, We should be launching v1.40 of NanoScope Analysis today. Please give this version a try to see if it corrects your scaling problem. If not, could you send a copy of your file to me? (steve.minne (at) We would like to investigate this further. I don’t have a routine...

  • Re: HSDC Format

    Hi Cosmin, There are separate sections in the header for each data channel. Each of the sections starts with a line "\*Ciao HSDC list". You will find different Data offsets, lengths and scales for each channel. I looked around and found an Igor procedure to read HSDC files! Here is a description...

  • Re: HSDC Format

    HSDC files are usually so large that they are unmanageable when exported to ASCII. It is usually much more efficient to directly read the native NanoScope files instead. This is especially true if you plan on analyzing a large number of files. Nanoscope files are composed of an ASCII header that contains...
