Dr. Adam Pilchak, materials research engineer at the Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, loads a piece of a fractured titanium disk into a scanning electron microscope.

(Air Force photo/Michele Eaton) AF lab investigating microscopic crack formations, metal fatigue
