Failure Analysis of Metal Alloy’s Microstructure

Phaos Case Studies

Metallurgy includes microstructure studies, typically boiled down to perform surface analysis on defects, grains, grain boundary and impurities.

Material Illustrated: Metal Alloy Microstructure Study

With the following requirement from our customer for their failure analysis of material, they require our ON200 optical microscopy system to:

  1. Determine the size distribution of grain.
  2. Identify the concentration of pores.
  3. Inspect the presence of microcrack.
  4. Identify the presence of impurities.

With this information, customer able to generate a timely and accurate report to identify the reason of the material’s failure.
