Unique high-brilliance X-ray sheds new light on additive manufacturing process
The additive manufacturing process involves depositing thin layers of composite materials on top of each other. AFRL Composite Materials and Processing team researchers used the ultra-bright X-ray at the National Synchrotron Light Source II at Brookhaven National Laboratory to gain better insight into the bonding of composite layers during the additive manufacturing process.
