Copper-tungsten alloy – 3D reconstruction

SEM (scanning electron microscope) + MountainsMap® SEM software


As copper and tungsten are not mutually soluble, copper-tungsten alloy is composed of distinct particles of one metal dispersed in a matrix of the other.

This material combines the properties of both metals and is heat-resistant, ablation-resistant, highly thermally and electrically conductive and easy to machine.

In order to investigate surface properties, the specimen was imaged using a scanning electron microscope (SEM).

Using MountainsMap®, the two SEM images obtained were converted into a measurable 3D model, allowing researchers to visualize and determine sample thickness.

Input Data

  • 2 SEM images obtained at different tilt angles
  • Mountains® tools used

  • Stereo reconstruction operator
  • Extract profile operator (to obtain height measurement)
  •
