Abstract

Two-dimensional light-scattering patterns from aggregates have undergone feature extraction followed by multivariate statistical analysis. The aggregates are comprised of primary particles of varying shape and size. Morphological descriptors (features) were extracted by a nonlinear filtering algorithm (spectrum enhancement) and then processed by principal component analysis and discriminant function analysis. The analysis was performed on two data sets, one in which the aggregates had a fixed primary particle size but varied in overall dimension and another in which the aggregate size was fixed but the primary particle size varied. Classification of the samples was performed adequately, providing some distinction among the limited classes that were analyzed.
