SECMx: Windows Program for Controlling Hardware for Scanning Electrochemical MIcroscopy (SECM)

SECMx is a control programm for instrumentation for scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM). It can operate with different hardware systems and allows for flexibly adapting setups to specific tasks while keeping the same software. The software can be easily expanded by adding new instrument drivers or programming new experiments.

The demo version allows you to see the experiments and the organisation. It can also "perform" experiments by simulating the behaviour of connected virtual devices. For a full version contact Gunther Wittstock.
