Correlative Multiscale Multimodal Tomography for Material Science - Specialised Vendor Workshop by Thermo Fisher Scientific

Time: 12:45 – 13:45

Where:  Room C4.4, ICC Sydney

Correlative Multiscale Multimodal Tomography (CM2T) is a workflow of spatial registration in two and three of many imaging modalities – light microscopy, electron/ion microscopy, X-Ray tomography, 2D/3D EBSD, EDS, Raman, etc. – that allows various types of information, and at different lenghscale, to be collected for the same region of interest.

            In this workshop we use CM2T workflow to investigate cracking in Blown Powder Laser Deposited (BPLD) IN718 coupons produced with 5kW laser power, 750 and 1250 mm/min feed. At the macroscale we observed large mm-long open cracks developed near the base of coupon and on the interface. These cracks form along grain boundaries of large columnar/dendritic grains. The typical weld-like microstructure related to deposition passes is not observed. Visualization of micro CT data shows network of cracks across the thickness of component. Micron scale results indicate that cracks develop in the Nb enriched regions (elements segregation regions and network of Laves phases. Porosity and large 30 µm diameter pore is observed inside a grain. At the nanoscale using TEM we observed g”, Aluminum Oxide, Titanium Nitride, Niobium Carbide precipitates. The combined capabilities of hardware and software allowed obtaining a new 3D insight into manufacturing defects developed during Blown Powder Laser Deposition.

            CM2T is supported with latest HeliScanTM micro X-Ray CT system and HeliosTM Plasma FIB – SEM DualBeamTM and TalosTM STEM microscopes and unique, software integrated instrumental environment using inter-linked software: Auto Slice&View 4TM, AvizoTM, MapsTM and AutoTEMTM. HeliScan brings a unique capability of micro CT to materials science by leveraging advanced helical scanning (ideal for slender components) and iterative reconstruction technology to produce unsurpassed image fidelity. PFIB system is the central part of correlative tomography workflow. It allows site-specific preparation and lift-out of massive sub-milometer blocks of material required for further 3D high resolution micro CT, PFIB Serial Sectioning Tomography and TEM studies.

106 and Beyond: The Next Generation Thermo Scientific Helios PFIB

Xe+ Plasma FIB/SEMs integrated Focused Ion Beams with Scanning Electron Microscopes have enabled researchers to access larger volumes of materials and metals with large grain structure to improve statistical accuracy for 2D and 3D analysis because of their large throughput capabilities.  Compared to liquid Ga+ source FIBs, the Xe+ plasma FIB (PFIB) has a greater current range and the ion has a greater mass.  The PFIB enables dramatically improved material removal rates compared to traditional methods, while maintaining exceptional surface quality and high-contrast, ultra-high resolution imaging performance. 

 

Now, Thermo Fisher Scientific is expanding the capability of the Helios G4 PFIB to utilize multiple ion species.  The new multi-ion source enables a user to select not only Xe+ ions, but also, O+, N+ and Ar+ ions without sacrificing quality to sample preparation.  The introduction of multiple ion sources expands the application space of a PFIB for beam sensitive and soft materials and extends Ga-free sample preparation to improve surface quality for S/TEM analysis.
