August 29, 2018Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin announces that the fastest 3D tomographic images to date have now been achieved by the BESSY II x-ray source. This speed can be beneficial with metallic foams, where fast sensing capability can capture a series of microstructures as the foaming process takes place.
July 23, 2018Researchers at Diamond Light Source Ltd., Oxfordshire, U.K., agree that there’s nothing quite like an ice cream on a hot day, and eating it before it melts too much is part of the fun. Ice cream is a soft solid and its appeal is strongly affected by the underlying microstructure. An international team of researchers brought samples to Diamond to investigate the temperature dependence of...
July 23, 2018Instron has announced plans to host a Biomedical Open House event September 20 at its Norwood, Mass. headquarters. The event will present the company’s latest advancements in static, dynamic, and impact testing for the biomedical field, including live demonstrations on how to improve efficiency in the lab, ways to expand capabilities, and how to deliver more accurate and reliable test...
