Fe, C 0.2 (wt%), explosively deformed - mechanical twins
This sample was explosively deformed so that there was insufficient time for dislocation motion to occur. Hence, mechanical twins are produced despite the b.c.c. structure of mild steel.

2.2 What is natural?

Many critics of GM feel that the techniques reflect an unwelcome form of ‘tampering with nature’. This is a particular concern of some consumers with respect to food. Such a view is sometimes scornfully interpreted as an expression of what is called the ‘naturalistic fallacy’ – a belief that equates morality with naturalness, seeing what is natural as ‘right’. But concerns about GM foods may reflect a more reasoned and defensible position. It might be argued that consumers are n

Thin section of ZnO varistor
The micrograph shows structure of ZnO, containing small amounts of oxides such as Sb2O3 and Bi2O3. Thin section was produced using liquid phase sintering: gives rise to a structure consisting of conductive ZnO grains with the additional oxides being preferentially located at grain boundaries. A varistor is used to short-circuit transient high voltage spikes in electronic devices. Incorporated into circuits, in parallel with the device to be protected. Acts as an insulator below a certain breakdo

Low magnification SEM 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, 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.

Cu 70, Ni 30 (wt%), cored dendrites
This alloy is typical of many copper based alloy systems. The dendrite structure shows coring (variation in solute concentration). The light areas are rich in nickel and the darker areas are low in nickel. Chill casting extracts heat quickly enough to prevent significant solid state diffusion, resulting in cored dendrites. The centres of the dendrites that cool near the liquidus temperature, are nickel rich compared to the outer layers that solidify at progressively lower temperatures. Because t

Rapid solidification in an atomised droplet
Because of the fine scale of the droplet, heat extraction is very rapid, and large undercoolings are achieved before crystal nucleation can begin. Thus, in this droplet, the solidification front has advanced very rapidly through the droplet from the nucleation point (on the surface at the left of the image). Its velocity is initially so great that no interfacial breakdown is possible. As the front advances, however, latent heat is evolved and this 'recalescence' reduces the rate of solidificatio

Fe, Ni 30, C 0.3 (wt%), quenched - martensite plates
This sample was quenched to -80 °C to give a metastable martensitic microstructure. The martensite plates show a lenticular morphology as the material attempts to shear as it transforms but is unable to open up voids at the grain boundaries. The plates form in a similar way to mechanical twins but the shear processes lead to changes in crystal structure as well as crystallographic orientation.
