I've collected some characterization data for my nanoscience and nanoengineering investigation - now what?
Go to the "Data Management" page and upload your experimental dat (e.g., RHEED video) in one of the following accepted formats:
- .tar, .zip, .gz archive file that contains any number of MP4 or AVI formatted RHEED videos.
Drag and drop your file into the dropzone or navigate using your file explorer. On successful upload, you will see a green checkmark and your data will be catalogued, kicking off the analysis steps.
