Interfaces play a crucial role in the two- phase and multi- phase materials properties. Strain partitioning through the interfaces determines materials response to external fields. Recently developed Polychromatic X-ray Microdiffraction together with Differential Aperture X-ray Microscopy was used to characterize the 3D distribution of strain and dislocation density near buried interfaces in layered and fibrous materials under external fields. It is shown that two-phase materials response to indentation and tension is distinct from the single phase materials. Depth-dependent opposite sign strains are directly measured in individual layers/fibers of the materials.
