microscale

A scale used in meteorology that extends from about 0.5 in to 0.6 mile (1 cm−1 km). Microscale processes include such things as dust devils, tornadoes, and thunderstorm updrafts or downdrafts.

Microscale analysis allows us to have a better understanding of how the materials fail, along with identification of failure initiation locations while macro mechanical analysis determines when the part will fail under a certain set of boundary conditions (loads and supports).
The combined high sensitivity and multi-frame capability , enables a UXI camera to be used with advanced X-ray and optical microscopes for imaging transient phenomena on the microscale. The UXI was developed to enable scientists to study the heating and compression of fusion targets in the quest to harness the energy processes that power the stars.
