Scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) describe how silicon carbide ceramics, reinforced with woven ceramic fibers, can improve jet-engine efficiency by tolerating higher operating temperatures. But first, the material must be thoroughly tested and its behavior understood at the microscopic level. At Advanced Light Source (ALS) Beamline 8.3.2, a newly developed high-temperature microtomography cell allows scientists to study these materials in 3D, at micron scale, under load, and at high temperatures.
