It was observed that each plane represented the two-dimensionally grown spherulitic structures.
The interstitial space primarily acts as a template, which confines the spherulites to grow two-dimensionally within microscopic compartments leading to the perfect structural alignment and integration of 2D spherulitic structures at their interfaces as shown in Fig.
Consequently, the AE sources were located two-dimensionally under the assumption that they are generated on the expected shear plane.
Electron diffraction analysis of this [Al.sub.80][Mn.sub.20] rapidly quenched alloy showed that the decagonal phase has a structure of two-dimensionally quasiperiodic layers, which are stacked periodically along the ten-fold axis, with a lattice parameter c = 1.24 nm.

These are just a few examples of well known artists that work two-dimensionally and whose self expression has left its mark on the world of art.
Traditionally, food scientists have used microscopic analyses that allow them to examine foods two-dimensionally. But because all structures are three-dimensional, using two-dimensional techniques gives an incomplete picture.
With conventional scroll compressors, compression is performed by horizontal movement (constant height) two-dimensionally. The 3D scroll system adopts vertical movement (height changes) by introducing steps into the scrolling mechanism, resulting in 15% higher compression efficiency.
