Summary

A brief illustration is presented of the useful role TEM can play in the various stages of the fabrication of materials from powders. TEM is a reliable tool for the physical characterization of powders. Also, comparative examination of a densified component and its parent powder by TEM can provide useful insight into the processes attendant to densification.
