Advanced Tomographic Methods in Materials Research and Engineering

John Banhart


Tomography provides three-dimensional images of heterogeneous materials or engineering components, and offers an unprecedented insight into their internal structure. By using X-rays generated by synchrotrons, neutrons from nuclear reactors, or electrons provided by transmission electron microscopes, hitherto invisible structures can be revealed which are not accessible to conventional tomography based on X-ray tubes. This book provides detailed descriptions of the recent developments in this field, especially the extension of tomography to materials research and engineering. The book is groupe ... More

Keywords: heterogeneous materials, image analysis, radiation, matter, synchrotron X-ray tomography, neutron tomography, electron tomography
