Description: This plugin opens the .ser-files produced by the TIA software (Emispec) commonly used with the FEI TEM microscopes. The TIA software writes typically two different file formats: (1) the .emi-file as an internal format of the TIA program and one or more .ser-file(s) as an open format. An acquired single image or spectra will be readable by this plugin, because the data will be written to a single .ser-file. The application of more advanced TEM techniques, such as EDS mapping, can lead to complex file structures including multiple .ser-files containing images and spectra. This plugin was written using the file description given on Dr. Chris Boothroyd's website.
