Aluminium alloy structure, atom probe tomography (APT). This is a sample of the strongest aluminium alloy, called 7000-series. It is aluminium alloyed with zinc. APT is an imaging technique used to determine the 3D atomic structure of metals and their chemical composition. Each dot represents one atom. The larger particles represent crystals growing within the sample, increasing its tensile strength.
