The following tutorial will guide, step by step, in running the MCP correction program
Every single data acquired using the MCP detector needs to be corrected for detector efficiency.
In the past, one had to go through the following steps:
Make sure the folder you select contains all the data folders. Any other folder selected (higher or lower in the hierarchy will crash the application)!
In the table, simply select all the data folder you want to correct. If a row is highlighted, this folder will be corrected
The data corrected will be moved into this folder
Each data set corrected will be copied inside a folder based on the name of all the images and inside a folder of the data folder + “_corrected”.
This is where you can define the starting default folder, default output folder and also the run correction time out. The script run in the back requires user input to finish it, because we wanted to allow you to run several job one after the other without your input, we, using the time out value, stop the process manually. During testing, we found that 35s is long enough to allow all the files to be translater. In case you find that the time out shows up too early, you may need to increase the time here.
