The majority of metallic and ceramic engineering materials of interest are polycrystalline. The properties of these materials can be significantly affected by behaviour at the length scale of the crystalline grain structure. The ability to characterise this crystallographic microstructure, non-destructively and in three-dimensions, is thus a powerful tool for understanding many facets of materials performance.
The technique of laboratory based X-ray diffraction contrast tomography (lab-DCT) has recently become available; allowing the routine characterization of polycrystalline materials on a commercial laboratory X-ray microscope (ZEISS Xradia 520 Versa).
Here, we present a selection of application examples of lab-DCT, as well as discuss novel methods to extend the current capabilities of the technology.
