Abstract: Analysis of the residual stress state, the microstructure and surface topography of ceramic microcomponents made of Y2O3-stabilized ZrO2 produced by micro powder injection moulding were performed. During the production of the microspecimens sintering conditions were varied. The measurement of residual stresses has been carried out using the MAXIM (MAterials XRay IMaging) diffractometer at HASYLAB beamline G3 at DESY in Hamburg (Germany). The microstructure and surface topography of differently moulded specimens were examined using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and a confocal white light microscope type NANOFOCUS. The findings are used to establish correlations between process parameters and characteristics of the microcomponents. These will allow to improve the production process with respect to the mechanical properties of the microcomponents.

Abstract: Mass gain during oxidation, texture and residual stresses in oxide layers on polycrystalline Armco iron substrates with different surface conditions are investigated using thermogravimetry microscopy and synchrotron X-rays. The mass gain during oxidation in all samples follows a parabolic law. The parabolic oxidation constant increases with increasing roughness of a mechanically ground respectively polished oxide layer. Electrolytic polishing (grain surface etching) reduces while grain boundary etching increases the parabolic oxidation constant compared to the mechanically polished sample. All oxide layers show columnar growth of the magnetite and a moderate fiber texture. The magnetite contains compressive residual stresses. Under the conditions chosen for the oxidation treatment the magnitude of these compressive residual stresses does not depend on the substrate surface condition.

Abstract: Position resolved structural information from polycrystalline materials is usually obtained via micro beam techniques illuminating only a single spot of the specimen. Multiplexing in reciprocal space is achieved either by the use of an area detector or an energy dispersive device. Alternatively spatial information may be obtained simultaneously from a large part of the sample by using an array of parallel collimators between the sample and a position sensitive detector which suppresses crossfire of radiation scattered at different positions in the sample. With the introduction of an X-ray camera based on an energy resolving area detector (pnCCD) we could combine this with multiplexing in reciprocal space.

Abstract: The outstanding properties of synchrotron radiation (SR) allow manifold investigations of materials and processes which are not possible with conventional X-ray sources. Its high brightness allows extremely precise or time/spatial resolved measurements. In combination with its high collimation extremely high angular resolution is achievable. The white spectrum of SR allows tuning of the wavelength for spectroscopic applications or optimization according to the requirements of the experiment.
