Atom Probe Tomography: Analysis at the Atomic Level by M. K. Miller (auth.)

By M. K. Miller (auth.)

The microanalytical means of atom probe tomography (APT) allows the spatial coordinates and elemental identities of the person atoms inside of a small quantity to be made up our minds with close to atomic answer. for this reason, atom probe tomography presents a method for buying atomic solution 3­ dimensional pictures of the solute distribution in the microstructures of fabrics. This monograph is designed to supply researchers and scholars the required details to plot and experimentally behavior an atom probe tomography scan. The thoughts required to imagine and to investigate the ensuing 3-dimensional information also are defined. The monograph is geared up into chapters each one masking a particular point of the process. the improvement of this strong microanalytical method from the origins offield ion microscopy in 1951, in the course of the first three-d atom probe prototype in-built 1986 to trendy advertisement cutting-edge 3­ dimensional atom probe is documented in bankruptcy 1. A basic creation to atom probe tomography can be awarded in bankruptcy 1. a number of the ways to fabricate compatible needle-shaped specimens are awarded in bankruptcy 2. The technique to shape box ion photographs of the needle-shaped specimen is defined in bankruptcy three. moreover, the looks of microstructural good points and the knowledge which may be envisioned from box ion microscopy are summarized. a short account of the theoretical foundation for approaches of box ionization and box evaporation can be included.

Example text

The methods used to fabricate suitable field ion specimens with various techniques are outlined in the remainder of this Chapter. 1 Initial Preparation Methods Many diverse methods have been developed to fabricate specimens suitable for field ion microscopy [2-4]. It should be noted that these methods may also be applied to fabricate needle-shaped specimens and probes for other techniques such as scanning tunneling microscopy. 5 mm square by -10 mm in length. This blank is generally cut out of the bulk material with a watercooled diamond impregnated cutting wheel or a water-cooled wire saw.
