Microfocus X-ray inspection in scientific institutions
The investigation of scientific samples and prototypes using microfocus computed tomography is very common. It allows the non-destructive visual analysis of structures and is the base for simulations of different environmental conditions like pressure and temperature.

Examples are the flow of water in rock or the dissociation of methane hydrate. The production method and composition of valuable historical artefacts can be discovered using high resolution X-ray systems. Applications can be found in several domains like material science, archaeology, geology, biology and physics.

Typical Applications

Non-destructive microfocus X-ray inspection in scientific institutions

Non-destructive microfocus X-ray inspection in scientific institutions, e.g.:
  • Plastics, ceramics, light alloys
  • Compounds, fibre reinforced materials
  • Organic materials, seeds, tree trunks
  • Soils, ice drilling cores
  • Concrete, rocks
  • Archaeological finds, paintings, statues
  • Superconductive material
