Description

Diverse environmental, clinical, and quality assurance problems involve the evaluation of airborne particle distributions originated from materials and objects manufactured with fiber glass. This analysis is performed manually by observing scanning electron micrograph (SEM) imagery, finding an adequate observation field, recognizing the objects of interest, and measuring their geometrical properties using a reference grid or a pointing device. This task is tedious, error prone, and sensitive to observer’s bias and eye-fatigue. A dedicated digital image analysis system capable of detecting and measuring various types of fibers and other objects from SEM images under different operating conditions is therefore needed.
