Paper Abstract

The first commercial image analysis system to use television scanning was introduced in the United States in 1966. Since then, this quanitative tool has gained widespread acceptance in the material science field. Applications utilizing particle and chord size distributions, area and phase fraction determina-tions, and mean linear intercept are well documented in the metallurgical and powder chemistry fields. To date there are nearly 500 systems in use worldwide.
