Abstract

The data from atomic force microscope images was analyzed for the detection and volume estimation of semiconductor quantum dots. The image-segmentation method was used for the quantum dot detection. The boundary of the quantum dot at each height step was determined for an effective volume estimation of the quantum dot. As the amount of the source material consumed could be predicted, the volume estimation was considered to be an important proceedure in the quantum dot growth.
