Research data supporting "Tempering of Low-Temperature Bainite"
Atomic position data, from papers using atom probe tomography to study low-temperature bainite. Samples for examination by atom probe were prepared from alloy~A2 transformed at 473 K for 12 days and subsequently tempered for 30 min at 673 K and 773 K. Samples from an alternate melt of similar composition, alloy A1, were similarly prepared and tempered for various times -- this material was used for inspection by X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy.
Alloy A2: Fe-0.75C-1.63Si-1.95Mn-1.48Cr-0.28Mo-0.1V-<0.01Al-0.003P-0.003S wt%
Alloy A1: Fe-0.79C-1.59Si-1.94Mn-0.02Ni-1.33Cr-0.3Mo-0.11V wt% Data in .pos and .ops format, can be used to repeat analysis presented in following papers, or for better visualisation of the tomographic data we presented. We hope this can become a resource to allow greater analysis of tomographic atom probe data in the future.
X-ray diffraction data for low-temperature bainite tempered for 1 hour at various temperatures is also included.
Data is from the following papers.

== POS files ==
A POS file consists of the reconstructed ion positions and the m/n for each reconstructed ion. The POS file has been genereated from reconstruction algorithms and is the minimum set of information required to perform subsequent data analysis. (ranges for m/n need to be specified) POS is the most widely used format for APT. The data for each of these fields (x, y, z, m/n) are stored in the order of assignment from reconstruction as 4-byte IEEE Standard 754 single-precision floats in most-significant bit (big-endian) byte order. It should be noted that many systems read by least-significant bit order (small-endian) and that byte swapping will likely be required for successful interpretation outside of commercial CAMECA software.
== OPS files ==
3D "POS" datasets from 2D detector sequences obtained from Oxford Nanoscience POsition Sensitive Atom Probe (POSAP) "OPS" files.
http://apttools.sourceforge.net/ looks like it might be useful for file conversion, and to find documentation of the file format.
== X-ray data ==
Data in XRD directory, for alloy A1 transformed at 473 K (a1_200_1.dat) and then tempered for 1 hour at temperatures from 623-873 K (temperatures in file names). Standard files types .rd, .dat.
