Key Features
  • Microtomography and X-ray imaging
  • Able to detect the internal structure down to 1 μm.
  • Enables a view to into hidden and buried microstructures that may be unobservable with 2D surface imaging technique (for instance AFM and SEM)
  • High resolution 3D full volume imaging
  • High contrast phase enhanced imaging
  • In situ measurement during imaging

Applications

  • Detecting micro-cracks and voids in composite materials
  • Rock microstructure modelling
  • Material characterization
  • Semiconductor packaging failure analysis
  • Life-science  research
