Image Analysis Tools
This laboratory facility includes both automatic and semi-automatic image analysis equipment. The Zeiss Videoplan System, coupled with a Zeiss ICM 405 inverted light microscope, handles all functions of quantitative microscopy on a semi-automated basis. The Videoplan performs routine data acquisition, storage and manipulations. An interface with local workstations permits more sophisticated data manipulation. Measurements of area, diameter, angle, length, centroid, and form factor can be made, as well as the digitizing of irregular curves such as fracture profiles. This instrument significantly reduces the level of effort necessary to quantitatively analyze micrographs or curves, and plays a central role in our analyses for quantitative fractography.
