Triple Ion Beam Cutting of Diamond/Al Composites for Interface Characterization

The microstructure of new materials with heterogenic components is extremely difficult to study. As mechanical polishing often not leads to smooth surfaces, a novel ion beam cutting technique has proven to be very effective. In this article, the applicability of a novel triple ion beam (TIB) cutting technique for a clean metallographic preparation of the …
