Defects in glassware known as "stuck glass" are caused by flying glass particles falling into red hot bottles during their manufacture. We describe the design, construction, and results of a prototype electro-optical inspection machine which detects sub-millimeter defects in glass bottles. This system uses pattern processing and spatial filtering in the Fourier domain to optically subtract the signature of the nondefec-tive part of the bottle, from the total image of the bottle. The huge variation in acceptable glass bottles, even within a particular sized bottle, requires a unique spatial filter for each bottle being inspected. We use a two-dimensional spatial light modulator to create such an adaptive spatial filter which allows us to compensate for these variations in real-time.
