Overview: 

A new image analysis system that automatically identifies and characterises individual fibers in a multifiber image even when the fibers are overlapping, curving and randomly oriented.

Key Features: 

  • It is an image analysis system that characterises individual fibers in a multifiber image and calculates local as well as global structural parameters automatically.
  • The software first identifies individual fiber and then tracks (by "Swim through") it along its entire length and by virtue of which enables structural characterization of the fibrous system.
  • Quantitative estimates of parameters for fibers is obtained.

Applications: 

  • SEM based manufacturing.
  • Lab applications in the area of fiber reinforced composites, nanowires. Carbon nanotubes
  • Biomaterials and tissue engineering
  • Textile industry etc.
