Characterization of Defects in Ceramics by Computerized Tomography with High Spatial Resolution
X-ray computerized tomography with spatial resolution of a few tens of micrometers and high contrast resolution offers new possibilities for the detection of shrinkage cracks and incomplete wetting of the contact surfaces in soldered metal — ceramic joints, of crack growth due to bending tests, the determination of the material in small inclusions and the resolution of density gradients in the neighbourhood of voids in ceramic materials.
