Description: Steel, austenitised at 1200 centigrade for 120 s and then transformed isothermally at 350 centigrade for 2000 s before cooling to room temperature. The specimen was polished prior to transformation. This atomic force microscope image shows the displacements caused by the formation of bainite.
