Rapid estimation of porosity and mineral abundance in backscattered electron images using a simple SEM image analyser

Abstract

Image analysis is becoming an integral part of scanning electron microscopy. A number of analog and digital image analysis systems of varying sophistication are now available for the SEM. This paper illustrates how one such relatively simple system, the IMAS image analyser manufactured by Cambridge Technology, can be used to obtain rapid quantitative estimates of porosity and mineral abundance in backscattered electron images of polished rock sections.--Modified journal abstract.
