⇒ Quantify individual fibers whether they are separate, touching or overlapping.

⇒ Analyze SEM images (SE & BSE modes), light microscopy images and topographical data of a wide variety of samples:

  • Electrospun nano-fibers
  • Cellulose and other organic fibers (gelatin, muscle)
  • Synthetic fibers (such as Kevlar, polyethylene, glass) and composite materials
  • Fibers from crime scenes (in forensics)
  • Non-woven fibers (in filters for example)
  • Mineral fibers, like asbestos.
  • Etc.

⇒ Detect fibers & interstices automatically using dedicated detection methods for:

  • light fibers on a dark background
  • dark fibers on a light background
  • SEM-SE fibers with a dark center and light edges
  • SEM-BSE fibers (gray on gray).

(all methods can be manually controlled and adjusted by the user).

⇒ Carry out analysis of fiber morphology and display:

  • a histogram of fiber diameters
  • a table of parameters for individual fibers and interstices including:
    • fiber diameter (mean, min, max, standard deviation)
    • average fiber direction (or fiber orientation)
    • interstice diameter

⇒ Interactivity: click on a fiber segment or interstice in the image, and automatically jump to the corresponding row in the parameters table, and vice versa.

⇒ Display calculation steps:

  • raw image
  • binarized image
  • distance map (simulated fiber topography used to calculate fiber diameter)
  • segmented image showing fiber segments and ridges of the distance map

⇒ Display results as:

  • a diameter map of imaged fibers
  • a direction map of fibers (with circular color-scale).

⇒ Export numerical results and images in several formats.
