X-Ray Microtomography

Description

Micro-CT is an X-Ray 3D imaging technique with a high resolution that allows the visualization of the internal structure of a sample without destroying it. It can be used to scan, for example, bones, geological samples, electronic samples, composites. With the help of the associated software it is possible to analyze the images to obtain and visualize a 3D model (reconstruction) of the object as well as a cross-section expansion, and is also possible to analyze the images and the 3D model to calculate, for example, porosity, structure thickness, object volume. Our lab owns a microtomograph Skyscan 1272 by Bruker.
