A number of different studies are in progress at the Department of Materials, University of Oxford involving the use of image processing and analysis methods to help quantify time-dependent processes in different materials. Practical observations of these phenomena are made in situ transmission electron microscopy. The key to success has been the understanding of the important factors enabling the brain/eye combination to make qualitative assessments and using the flexibility of the image processing system available to develop appropriate routines to allow quantitative measurements to be made. Applications include the development of optical and magnetic storage media and studies of catalysts.
