Paper Abstract

A method of inputting microscopic phase objects into a coherent optical pattern recognition system is described. The method consists of directing a laser beam into an interference contrast microscope to produce an enlarged, coherent image of the specimen. The system has the advantage of presenting high contrast, dark field images to the correlator without the need of additional pre-processing for image enhancement. Applications to diatom recognition are shown.
