Abstract : Drexel University's Department of Materials Engineering has acquired a state of the art optical metallograph and an image analysis system. The latter interfaces with the optical metallograph and a scanning electron microscope. The optical analysis system (Model DV-4400) for interfacing with the Zeiss Metallograph is designed to perform image enhancement, feature measurement and classification, utilizing a conventional TV camera. Interface with the scanning electron the operator to perform quantitative image analysis directly from the specimen in the microscope. In addition, the unit can determine relative x-ray intensity classification on the basis of chemistry.
