They say seeing is believing; new imaging tools such as magnetic resonance imaging, X-ray and electron beams provide ever sharper views of how materials behave in demanding environments. An understanding of these materials and how they can be manipulated is vital for meeting the challenges of our age - from mobile and personalised devices to large-scale, high performance machines and infrastructure. We will demonstrate what 3D imaging can achieve today, with scales ranging from metres to the atomic, and time lapse imaging ranging from weeks to milliseconds. We will also provide a window on what might be achievable tomorrow.
