Estimating SICM pipette tip geometry from breakage data

Description

Functions to estimate the interior half-cone angle and tip radius of a scanning ion conductance microscope (SICM) pipette by fitting recorded changes in pipette conductance as the pipette tip is broken. See the referenced paper for a full discussion of this technique.

Examples

# load the example data set
data("break.data")

# get the bottom points
raw.points <- breakage.plot(break.data, mV=100)
## Not run: 
# select the clusters
clustered <- break.clust(raw.points)

# fit the tip geometry to the clustered points
fit <- fit.breakage(clustered, rho=64)

## End(Not run)
