X-ray tomography image of open cell polyurethane foam
If a gas is injected into a liquid it forms a cellular foam structure. When a thermoset prepolymer of low viscosity is foamed, the polymer can drain from the cell walls (driven by surface tension) before it sets at the cell edges, leaving an open-celled foam. The cell edges have three concave sides. The average co-ordination number for the nodes (where struts meet) is four, giving tetrahedral junctions. The deformation behaviour of the foam was observed by X-ray microtomography at the ESRF in Gr

FORMGRIP closed cell aluminium foam
Additions such as SiC are made to molten aluminium or aluminium alloy to modify the melt viscosity and make it suitable for foaming. 1 to 3 wt% of pre-oxidised titanium hydride is then added to the melt which is solidified to form a precursor which can be foamed in a controlled manner by a subsequent heat treatment. The resulting foam has a relatively fine and uniform cell structure.

Alporas' closed cell aluminium foam
Additions are made to molten aluminium or aluminium alloy to modify the melt viscosity and make it suitable for foaming. 1 to 3 wt% titanium hydride is then added to the melt, and this foams the melt by releasing hydrogen. The foamed melt solidifies to yield a closed cellular structure with an average cell size of 4.5 mm

If a gas is injected into a liquid it forms a cellular foam structure. When a thermoset prepolymer of low viscosity is foamed, the polymer can drain from the cell walls (driven by surface tension) before it sets at the cell edges, leaving an open-celled foam. The cell edges have three concave sides, giving rise to the tri-cuspid cross section visible at the bottom of this image. The average co-ordination number for the nodes (where struts meet) is four, giving tetrahedral junctions.

Phase separation in solid solution upon cooling: vial projection
The vial containing a mixture of cyclohexane and aniline cooling from 35°, has been filmed perpendicular to the direction of the laser light (left to right). When the critical temperature is reached and the mixture goes from a single phase to two phases, the spot of light on the screen is disrupted as the phases separate. The spot "flickers" and then becomes totally diffuse. It will eventually form a single spot again once the transition is completed and the two chemicals have complet

Water Transport in Plants: Anatomy and Physiology
This investigation presents a condensation of two, 3-hour laboratory sessions. In one phase, we adopt a classic dye uptake experiment to determine the path of upward water transport in a detached shoot. Photography of stem thin sections taken with a digital video camera aided by compound and stereomicroscopes and a computer significantly enhance the presentation of observations and their interpretation. In a second phase, we determine the quantitative role of leaves in determining the rate of tr
