Porous materials have attracted great attention for various applications, e.g., catalysis, novel materials, energy related topics, acoustics, microelectronics, actuator, bioengineering and biomimetic. Recently, porous materials have gained interest as interconnect materials for power semiconductor device.

The trend in the semiconductor industry goes towards eco-friendliness and higher energy efficiency. Semiconductor compound materials, such as silicon carbide (SiC) or gallium nitride (GaN), pave novel possibilities in this manner with operation temperatures above 200 °C.

How Amira-Avizo Software is used

The reconstruction of the 3D data is part of the image pre-processing step. It includes, image-stacking, −alignment, and -cropping using Avizo 2019.1. […] The EBSD data of porous materials contains false registered pore areas. We eliminate those artefacts by masking the pore area using Avizo 2019.1.
