The main objectives of the present study are:

- To develop an automatic system of analysis of microscopic images which, from a preparation of coal placed in a specially adapted microscope, allows determination, in very little time, of the detailed slurry composition of the sample, without the intervention of a specialist;
- Using a specialised and appropriate system, to implement the knowledge necessary to manage the previous system with maximum objectivity and accuracy, during the petrographic analysis of the coal sample;
- To obtain simultaneously the histogram of reflectivity of any of the slurries (of the telocolinite, for instance);
- If the new system proves efficient, to study its enforcement in the microscopy of coke and of other carbon related materials.
