Applications in Automated Microscopy
Automation of measurements and automatic analysis of samples on a transmission electron microscope enables a large variety of new microscopy applications suited for industrial needs. The consequences of these new possibilities are profound. The current methods for performing measurements and analysis should be considered carefully in order to find the optimal procedures and conditions needed to deliver the required accuracy or throughput. This chapter shows how to design an automated microscopy application using a model-based approach for one specific application, viz. the size analysis of a mixture of particles.
