MicroscoPy 0.9

Simple platform for scanning confocal microscopy and spectroscopy

Package Documentation

MicroscoPy is a simple platform for scanning confocal microscopy and spectroscopy in Python. It is controlled entirely from the (I)Python interactive console, with the addition of a few graphic widget to control the instruments and visualise data.

The core modules are:

  • hal: a simple API that makes it easy to integrate new hardware in MicroscoPy by wrapping any existing device as hal.Actuator or hal.Sensor objects.
  • scan: flexible, scalable scanning routines. Multidimensional scans are build from arbitrary combinations of unidimensional scans
  • keypad: Tkinter widgets to control actuators from the keyboard
  • display: Tkinter widgets to display camera images and 1D spectra in real time.


MicroscoPy has only been tested in Python 2.7:

$ pip2.7 install microscopy
