Automatic Atom Identification in STM images

The "Automatic atom identification in STM images" is a software for the automatic localization and recognition of atoms in high-resolution STM images of crystal lattice surfaces, showing the coexistence of different atomic layers and species. It utilizes image processing for artifact removal and the identification of the basic crystal structure and applied machine learning for the classification of the different atomic species.
