FULL-TEXT - ABSTRACT
(Introduction) Computed Micro-Tomography (CMT) allows a non-destructive three-dimensional structural analysis of composite materials. Emphasis is given to biocompatible mate-rials often composed of light elements.
(Summary) Fibers used in composites have diameters of several micrometers. This is a typical extension only accessible by synchrotron radiation sources. For composites made of light element materials or organic tissue, phase contrast images give better contrast. We gratefully acknowledge the support of M. Zgraggen for the SEM micrograph and the department of materials technology in Thun for providing the sample of continuous-fiber metal-matrix composite.
