What is a DM4 file?

A DM4 file is a raster image created by Gatan DigitalMicrograph, a transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis application. It includes a TEM image and metadata. The DM4 format is an update to the .DM3 format.

More Information

Physicists and other scientists use TEM to create cross sections, spectrum, and diffraction images of ultrathin specimens. DigitalMicrograph saves the TEM images it creates in various proprietary file formats, including the DM4 format.

Notably, the DM4 format includes support for spectrum images, while DM3 and earlier DigitalMicrograph formats do not. As a result, DM4 files can sometimes have much larger file sizes than DM3 images.
