Abstract

Phase contrast photographs of diatoms are characterized from their Fourier transform taken through an optical diffractometer. The system output is placed on line to a PDP11/40 providing digital subtraction of two output spectral distributions due to different species. Differences obtained in this manner are used for characterizing various species. An average Fourier transform taken through coherent additions is also analyzed to find common features in a given set of diatoms.
