A method to measure the size, orientation, and location of opaque micro-fibers using digital holography is presented. The method involves the recording of a digital hologram followed by reconstruction at different depths. A novel combination of automated image analysis and statistical techniques, applied on the intensity of reconstructed digital holograms is used to accurately determine the characteristics of the micro-fibers. The performance of the proposed method is verified with a single fiber of known length and orientation. The potential of the method for measurement of fiber length is further demonstrated through its application to a suspension of fibers in a liquid medium. (c) 2009 Optical Society of America
