JavaScope is part of the World Wide Laboratory Project being undertaken by the Beckman Institute Imaging Technology Group. JavaScope is a web-based application designed to operate a Philips CM200 Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) and to view digital images remotely. As a teaching and demonstration tool it can provide a "bulletproof" interface to the instrument for naïve users and spectators. As a service tool it can be used by expert technicians to illustrate and explore specific problems with an instrument. This allows for a straightforward determination of the nature of a problem which benefits both customer and service provider. In this paper we will describe the implementation of the JavaScope application and discuss some of the benefits and disadvantages of the system.

The JavaScope Interface

We are currently distributing the Java source files for JavaScope|TEM. Below you will find source distribution for the package in tar.gz and .zip formats. Documentation is currently poor and we provide this software as-is.
