Researchers at Helmholtz-Zentrum Have Reported New Data on Molecular Graphics and Modelling (MaterialVis: Material visualization tool using direct volume and surface rendering techniques) By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators discuss new findings in Molecular Graphics and Modelling. According to news reporting out of Dresden, Germany, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Visualization of the materials is an indispensable part of their structural analysis. We developed a visualization tool for amorphous as well as crystalline structures, called Material Vis." Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Helmholtz-Zentrum, "Unlike the existing tools, Material Vis represents material structures as a volume and a surface manifold, in addition to plain atomic coordinates. Both amorphous and crystalline structures exhibit topological features as well as various defects. Material Vis provides a wide range of functionality to visualize such topological structures and crystal defects interactively. Direct volume rendering techniques are used to visualize the volumetric features of materials, such as crystal defects, which are responsible for the distinct fingerprints of a specific sample. In addition, the tool provides surface visualization to extract hidden topological features within the material." According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Together with the rich set of parameters and options to control the visualization, Material Vis allows users to visualize various aspects of materials very efficiently as generated by modern analytical techniques such as the Atom Probe Tomography."
