Abstract

An arrangement for determining the size distribution of small particles (e.g., droplets or bubbles) is presented. It consists of taking high speed holograms with a frequency doubled Nd:YAG laser, reconstructing the real image with an argon-ion laser, and a digital image processing system with a random access image dissector camera and two cascaded computers for filtering, segmentation, and higher recognition tasks. Results are presented for cavitation bubbles as test objects. It is shown that the quality of the holograms is sufficient for detecting bubbles with a diameter of <20 μm by digital image processing with the present configuration.
