Workshop: Using X-Ray Microscopy to resolve your problems in metals, ceramics and soft materials

Wednesday 3rd April 2019, University of Birmingham



X-ray microscopy (XRM) provides non-destructive 3D imaging capabilities on specimens across a range of length scales, observing features with sizes spanning from nanometers to millimeters.

XRM has emerged as a powerful imaging technique that can obtain information from a variety of materials under a wide range of conditions and environments. Observing the evolution of microstructures in 3D on the identical region of a single sample can rapidly benefit microstructure modelling techniques.

This is largely a unique capacity of X-ray tomography and several examples of in-situ and ā€˜4Dā€™ experiments will be presented that addresses current problems faced in material sciences. We will also show how sometimes multiple techniques/instruments are needed to resolve the problem and how ZEISS achieves this through Correlative workflows.
