Recently, three-dimensional (3D) direct observations and analysis of polymer morphologies draw considerable attention because they not only offer intuitive understanding of the morphologies but also provide novel structural parameters ("3D imaging"). Together with the laser scanning confocal microscopy, transmission electron microtomography (TEMT) and X-ray computerized tomography allow 3D direct observations over a wide spatial range from nm to μm. In the present paper, a couple of applications of the 3D microscopy to polymer nano-structures, including microphase-separated structures of block copolymers, polymer/filler nano-composites, will be reported in order to demonstrate huge and promising capabilities of the new technique.
