readBIF: ToF-SIMS BIF/BIF6 file import

Description

Function to read ToF-SIMS data in the form of preprocessed BIF files

Usage

1
2
readBIF(analysisName, instrument = c("iontof", "ulvacphi"),
  mode = c("spectra", "image"))

Arguments

analysisName

: filename of BIF/BIF6 file to read

instrument

: character, 'iontof' or 'ulvacphi'

mode,

'spectra' or 'image'

Details

This function imports BIF files from IONTOF Surface Lab or ULVAC-PHI's WinCadence. This function reads the data sequential directly from the binary stream. Therefore it's rather slow, but uses less memory than the readBIFParallel function.

Value

object of type MassImage or MassSpectra
