In electrochemical devices such as fuel cells or batteries the microstructure is a determining factor for the performance of the device. To be able to optimize the microstructure it is important to be able to quantitatively measure key structural parameters, such that systematic studies can be made. We present several general methods for quantitative(More)
Routine use of quantitative three dimensional analysis of material microstructure by in particular, focused ion beam (FIB) serial sectioning is generally restricted by the time consuming task of manually delineating structures within each image slice or the quality of manual and automatic segmentation schemes. We present here a framework for performing(More)
The Swedish micro-satellite Astrid-2 was successfully launched into a near polar orbit in December 1998. Despite the fact that its primary mission was the research of Auroral phenomena, the magnetic instrumentation has been designed to accomplish high resolution vector field magnetic measurements, and therefore mapping of the Earth's magnetic field is(More)
An optimum method is proposed to prepare thin foil transmission electron microscopy (TEM) lamellae of multiphase porous functional ceramics: prefilling the pore space of these materials with an epoxy resin prior to focused ion beam milling. Several advantages of epoxy impregnation are demonstrated by successful preparation of TEM specimens that maintain the(More)
