Abstract : The development of methods to noninvasively, nondestructively 'see' (image) the interior of structures--for example, mechanical components to be used in large or small power generation systems, electronic components, special material test pieces used in process development or biological systems including the human body--is a research area to which the medical community has given extensive attention. X-ray 'CAT' scanning and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) are two cases in point. The development of new structural materials for advanced industrial needs, such as new energy-efficient engines, new materials such as superconductors, as well as the study of materials involved advanced chemical processing, have driven the need for high sensitivity, high spatial resolution nondestructive characterization methods such as computed tomography. The purpose of this symposium was to present the most advanced work in this technological area. The present volume contains the edited papers of the first Materials Research Society symposium devoted to the topic of tomographic imaging applied to materials research. The papers are organized by the tomographic modality (i. e., X-ray, NMR, Diffraction, etc.). However, because the modalities provide different information, a session on multi-modality imaging is provided. Each section of this volume provides the most current information available on the applications to materials.
