Abstract
In particle size measurement by imaging methods, two types of illumination are encountered: coherent and non-coherent. For both the analyzed volume is limited by out of focus effects. The aim of our study is to turn away that limitation by a morphological analysis of particle images obtained with a configuration close to in-line Gabor holography. Fringe pattern appears in these images and it is no longer comparable to non-coherent shadowgraphy images which become fuzzy with out of focus positions of the object. A simulation of the image formation has been performed thanks to a model. The diameter of the spherical particle and its z position from the focus plane are parameters of the model. Particle sizing will be derived from original morphologic criteria inferred from the fringes. These criteria can be defined and validated by simulation and experimental results. This paper presents: the model and its characteristics, a comparison of experimental and simulated images, and the morphological analysis for different particle sizes and positions.
