Three-dimensional (3D) tomographic imaging, using x-rays or electrons, of the structural, chemical, and physical properties of a material provides key knowledge that links the structure of a material to its processing, which is central to studies across a broad spectrum of materials. For decades, tomography using x-rays or electrons has proven to be an essential 3D characterization tool. In recent years, advances in technology have enabled new imaging capabilities at the nanometer or atomic scale for 3D reconstruction.
The April 2020 issue of MRS Bulletin discusses developments, techniques, and future directions for 3D tomographic imaging. This webinar expanded upon and complemented the MRS Bulletin issue with talks from leading experts in the field. An interactive Q&A session followed each of the talks.
