The rows (x-direction) were stitched together with ptgui and the columns (y-direction) was put together with photoshop since ptgui had serious problems. Mainly because the x-length of the resulting rows varied a little bit. For the fitting I used Multiply Blending and for putting it together Dissolve. I'am not sure if this is suitable, but it looked reasonable well. If there are differences in X-direction it is due to the sharpness adjustment, if the sharpness was readjusted for the next column the image plane might have shifted which means it gets a bit more green/brown f.e.. This probably has happened at some column and also ptgui had problems there finding control points. Though it doesn't kills information. > Thanks for the explanation elsewhere that the shadow > pictures from some of the structures result from the > microscopes optics (e.g. the S from MOS).

So if someone thinks a darkfield image of a certain area would help him to resolve the circuit, I can take again some in a quick shot. (But best would be nearer future, i.e. the next months, you might want to take the opportunity). Ciao... ...Micha Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
