Abstract

"Methods of preparing foils of high strength, heat treated, plain carbon steels for examination in the electron microscope by the transmission technique were perfected and are described. Two processes for the initial thinning of a bulk sample were successful. A chemical process was found to be more rapid but not satisfactory for small samples. A mechanical process was slower, but was applicable to the smaller specimens. Electro-polishing the thinned material yielded acceptable foils from which photomicrographs of good quality were obtained. The microstructure of the high strength steel samples showed typical tempered martensite. No reasons for the differences in ductility of different heats of steel or for the differences in ductility of a given steel, when heat treated differently, were found"--Abstract, page ii.
