Summary

Non-destructive information from the internal structure of polymer and composite materials in natural or adjustable conditions can be obtained by transmission X-ray microscopy. Combination of X-ray microscopy technique with tomographical reconstruction allows getting three-dimensional information about the internal microstructure nondestructively [1]. The spatial resolution and detectability in the micron range of sizes can be improved by using of phase contrast.
