Artificial Intelligence Driven Automated Atomic Manipulation (ANL-SF-21-138)

This software uses trained machine learning algorithms to classify features in a scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) topography, and feeds the results to a custom automated atomic manipulation subroutine, thereby circumventing the requirement for operator
