In order to better understand the microstructure and properties of polymer materials, it is important to reconstruct the images in high-resolution 3D. However, current methods such as DualBeam (FIB-SEM) are typically unable to provide a representative volume. Similarly, MicroCT measurements lack the resolution to characterize the regions with the smallest pores. In both cases, inaccurate transport properties are obtained, leading to either a wrong interpretation of filtration behavior or wrong predictions of the performance of a new filter design. With that in mind, we developed our Apreo VolumeScope to combine in situ sectioning and imaging of polymers within the SEM vacuum chamber in a fully automated fashion.
