3D/4D imaging of crystal structures
gHigh resolution imaginghand the microstructure characteristic tracking technology described in g4D mapping of internal mechanical quantitiesh,we have developed a 4D tracking technology for determining crystal grain deformation behaviors within materials (Paper 1), and call it grain boundary tracking.
Paper 2).This will sharply improve the precision of grain boundary detection and reconstruction of grain shapes, and will offer an innovative crystallographic method that can be used for investigating deformed materials. We will develop the technology into one without equal in the world, appropriate for assessing the mechanical behaviors of structural materials.
