Abstract

Aluminium composites containing Al2O3 fibres and precipitates of various intermetallic phases are investigated by high-resolution computerized microtomography. Individual fibres 15 μm in diameter and intermetallic phases forming a network with about 15 μm mesh size have been imaged. The capabilities of the method and its further development down 1 μm and less spatial resolution are discussed.
