Looking Inside Nanomaterials in 3-D

Scientists have developed new method for revealing a 3-D picture of the structure inside a material. Most solid materials are composed of millions of small crystals, packed together to form a fully dense solid. The orientations, shapes, sizes and relative arrangement of these crystals are important in determining many material properties. A new method allows 3-D mapping of the crystal structure inside a material down to nanometer resolution.
