Application Note: Multi-Scale Correlative Study of Corrosion Evolution in a Magnesium Alloy
17 August 2016

This application note describes the results of a multi-scale correlative tomography study on the corrosion of a Magnesium alloy. Zeiss’ Atlas 5 is used to efficiently link and navigate between in situ sub-micron X-ray microscopy, nanoscale X-ray microscopy and FIB-SEM tomography. The study provides a description of the complex crack and corrosion byproduct geometries which can lead to a more complete understanding of the underlying mechanisms for corrosion.
