What is particle image analysis?
Particle image analysis is a technique for determining particle size and particle shape parameters based on the captured images obtained by using specific cameras. The critical step in particle image analysis is processing the captured images, which provides two-dimensional pictures from the pixels counted.
The data acquired is used to provide image binarization, enhancement of picture quality, and particle identification. The processed picture is then analyzed automatically by a computer with the help of algorithms to yield the particle size distribution and related particle shape parameters of the observed sample.
