Data for Chemical Short-Range Ordering in a CrCoNi Medium-Entropy Alloy



This dataset is for characterizing chemical short-range-ordering in CrCoNi medium entropy alloys. It has three sub-folders: 1. code, 2. sample WQ, 3. sample HT. The software needed to run the files is Gatan Microscopy Suite® (GMS). Please follow the instruction on this page to install the DM3 GMS: <a href=""></a>

1. Code folder contains three DM scripts to be installed in Gatan DigitalMicrograph software to analyze scanning electron nanobeam diffraction (SEND) dataset:
Cepstrum.s: need [EF-SEND_sampleWQ_cropped_aligned.dm3] in Sample WQ and the average image from [EF-SEND_sampleWQ_cropped_aligned.dm3]. Same for Sample HT folder.
log_BraggRemoval.s: same as above.
Patterson.s: Need refined diffuse patterns in Sample HT folder.

2. Sample WQ and 3. Sample HT folders both contain the SEND data (.ser) and the binned SEND data (.dm3) as well as our calculated strain maps as the strain measurement reference. The Sample WQ folder additionally has atomic resolution STEM images; the Sample HT folder additionally has three refined diffuse patterns as references for diffraction data processing.
* Only .ser file is needed to perform the strain measurement using imToolBox as listed in the manuscript. .emi file contains the meta data of the microscope, which can be opened together with .ser file using FEI TIA software.
