Time-resolved x-ray phase tomography using a Talbot interferometer and white synchrotron radiation can provide a three-dimensional movie for visualizing the structural change of materials consisting of light elements. In this study, time-resolved x-ray stroboscopic phase tomography using a Talbot interferometer is demonstrated for a vibrating object under 24 Hz compression-stretch fatigue loading. Moiré patterns are recorded by synchronizing drivers for a shutter, grating displacement, and sample rotation with an x-ray camera with a 200 μs exposure, and phase tomograms are reconstructed at specific motion phases of the vibration. The measurement lasts for a few minutes and the δvalue changes before breaking, which is considered due to plastic deformation of soft materials under external vibration are depicted three-dimensionally.
