QMB: The QSTEM Model Builder


QMB is part of the QSTEM software suite. It allows you to:

  • Build super structures with arbitrarily many crystalline grains
  • Specify independent crystal structures, orientations, and translation vectors for each grain
  • Define arbitrary (convex and concave) 2D outlines for each grain, as well as a lower and upper cutoff along the z-direction.
  • Load TEM or STEM images in .dm3 format and many other image formats
  • Trace the outline of grains in experimental images, so that the simulated structure represents the experimemtal setup.
  • Move and/or delete individual atomic columns or ranges of columns.
  • Save the super structure in .cfg or .xyz format.

Please read the QMB User Manual for further details.
