We're starting a new feature here on the Materials Today website: video highlights. These features will showcase some exciting research from across the field of materials science in video format.

If you would like to have your work featured, upload your video to YouTube and send the link along with a description of the video and the underlying research (400-750 words) to us by 1st March 2014. Click here to send us your link and description.

Our first video shows an atom probe tomography reconstruction generated from the analysis of an Al-Mg-Li alloy. Every dot in this tomogram corresponds to an individual atom that has been detected and reconstructed. The Al atoms are shown in blue, the Li in pink, the Mg in green and the Zr in purple.
