High‐speed atomic force microscopy (AFM) has been rapidly developed in recent years. To reduce the oscillation of the scanner, a single‐tone sinusoidal wave is widely used as a scanning wave rather than a triangular wave in high‐speed AFM. However, the sinusoidal wave is nonlinear, resultin...
Bird feather shafts are light, stiff, and strong, but the fine details of how their structure, mechanics and function relate to one another remains poorly understood. The missing piece in our understanding may be the various fibrous layers that make up the shaft's cortex. Detailed imaging t...
For X‐ray computed microtomography (μ‐CT) images of porous rocks where the grains and pores are not fully resolved, the greyscale values of each voxel can be used for quantitative calculations. This study addresses the challenges that arise with greyscale‐based quantifications by conducting...
To avoid the need for a mask and polarisation‐adjusting devices, and to solve the problem of low fringe contrast caused by the reflected light along with 0th‐order diffraction beam, this paper presents an illumination method using three nonzero‐order diffraction beams in liquid crystal on s...
A time‐lapse study of thermomechanical fatigue damage has been undertaken using three‐dimensional X‐ray computer tomography. Morphologies were extracted from tomography data and integrated with data from microscopy modalities at different resolution levels. This enables contextualization of...
