Modern synchrotron X-ray techniques provide valuable information on the microstructure evolution of a wide range of metallic systems during production and use. For metallic systems that are composed of relatively heavy atoms like aluminum, iron and titanium the availability of high-energy photons with a high penetration depth is essential. Synchrotron techniques are extremely suitable for non-destructive in-situ experiments as a function of temperature and applied stress. The combined capabilities of the available X-ray techniques make it possible to perform time-resolved experiments that probe a wide range of length scales ranging from atomic scale, nanoscale, microscale up to macroscopic mapping.
