Allows users to count any number of clearly distinguishable constituents or phases within a microstructure, providing a statistical estimation of the volume fraction of different phases. Each module contains a range of different routines, from two phases in black and white to up to five phases in color.
For example, duplex stainless steel.
TWO PHASES IN COLOR
For example, slag or portland cement clinker.
TWO PHASES WITH PARTICLES
For example, silicon constituent in an aluminum matrix.
TWO PHASES IN COLOR WITH PARTICLES
Such as Copper-Nickel alloys with red copper precipitates.
THREE PHASES IN GRAY
For example: petrographic sample, mineral.
THREE PHASES IN GRAY WITH PARTICLES
For example: TiB2 particles in an aluminum matrix.
THREE PHASES IN COLOR
Typically found in hardening coatings for applications like off-shore drilling.
THREE PHASES IN COLOR WITH PARTICLES
For example: heavy Tungsten (W) alloy in a matrix.
UP TO FIVE PHASES IN GRAY
For example: composite in polarized light without lambda plate.
UP TO FIVE PHASES IN COLOR
For example: automotive semi-metalic brake pad.
