Paper Abstract

High resolution electronic imaging is certain to become the dominant method for recording microscope images (photomicrographs) in industrial laboratories. The rate of transition from film recording to electronic recording depends upon cost and quality. Cost, with little regard for image quality, has already caused a significant shift away from film recording. Recent technology developments appear to have eliminated the quality limitations of electronic imaging for industrial microscopy. These quality limitations are primarily related to the inability to match tradition 4 by 5 photomicrographs in field size and resolution. Analysis and limited experimental results indicate that 1024 by 1280 pixel imaging should be able to achieve the objective of matching 4 by 5 photomicrographs.
