Summary An imaging method that combines small-angle scattering with tensor tomography to probe nanoscale structures in three-dimensional macroscopic samples in a non-destructive way is introduced. Small-angle scattering tensor tomography is applicable to both biological and materials science specimens, appropriate for in situ measurements and allows the study of the role of ultrastructure in the mechanical response of materials or tissues.

Summary Taking advantage of virtual tomography axes, two-dimensional SAXS information recorded on an area detector is used to reconstruct the full three-dimensional scattering distribution in reciprocal space for each voxel of the three-dimensional object in real space. SAXS computed tomography may be used for the characterization of mesoscopic materials with hierarchically structured features with length scales ranging from a few nanometers to a few millimeters.
