Traceable Nanoscale Metrology @ IoP

Last night I discovered that the Institute of Physics (IoP) has a London and South East Branch that organises public lectures.

Professor Richard Leach from NPL explained what ‘traceable’ means: linking back to the basic SI units of m / kg / sec. Well, my 3d metrics are conceptually traceable. In practice, they are a scale independent software framework to establish domain-specific qualitative measuring units.

Since I had spoken with him before, he had looked at my site and said that he needs proof that I’m actually ‘measuring’ something. He referred me back to Dr. Nick McCormick who had supplied me with the first image I ever processed.

Here’s another re-visualization I produced from that image – with ‘software vision’ and ‘pixel resolution’:

'Software vision' allows for 'seeing more'

At the time, I had only just discovered that I could conceivably use my insights for processing images, for I had talked with Uwe Braun, a German entrepreneur who wanted me to examine possible stains in car varnishings.

Since then I have learned a lot more about the connections between the physics of microscopes, the digitisation of images and visualization the capabilities of my prototype software.

Since Richard suggested I talk to Nick again who had given me the first image at the time, I now produced a systematic sequence of re-visualizations that hopefully shows ‘in a nutshell’ what I have to offer.
