Surface feature is the one of the most important factors affecting the functionality and reliability of micro scale patterned surfaces. For micro scale patterned surface characterisation, it’s important to extract the surface feature effectively and accurately. The active contours, known as “snakes”, have been successfully used to segment, match and track the objects of interest. The active contours have been applied to facial boundary detection, medical image processing, motion correction, etc. In this paper, surface feature extraction techniques based on active contours have been investigated. Parametric active contour models and geometric active contour models have been presented. Also, a group of examples has been selected here to demonstrate the feasibility and applicability of the surface pattern extraction techniques based on active contours. At last, experimental results will be given and discussed.
