3D Investigation of the Microstructural Modification in Hypereutectic Aluminum Silicon Alloy
26 July 2017

This application note presents a two-phase hypereutectic aluminum silicon alloy (Al-30Si), investigated at the microscale using non-destructive X-ray microscopy. First, a phase contrast imaging technique is used to discern silicon particles within the aluminum matrix. Then, quantitative data analysis enables a full three-dimensional analysis of the void and particle distribution.
