Cover Picture: Nano-characterization of Cast Structures by FIB-Tomography (Adv. Eng. Mater. 01-02/2008)
The cover shows the 3D-FIB reconstruction of an AlSi8Mg5 alloy with: AlFeSiMg aluminides (red), Mg2Si Chinese script (yellow∥, and Si lamellae (cyan/Al-transparent). The “tomograph” was obtained using SE-images for drawing the particle contours and low resolution EDS maps for phase identification (analyzed volume [xyz] = 14.0 × 7.9 × 7.0 μm3). More details can be found in the article by F. Lasagni et al. on page 62.
