Micro-CT

About us

Have you ever seen images from a medical CT-scanner? Now, the same technique can be applied to your micro samples! The high-resolution Micro-CT at Enabling Technologies allow you to cut virtual sections or even fly through samples non-destructively. Sample pretreatment is not needed. You can generate 3D images of your sample’s morphology and internal microstructure with resolution down to the sub-micron level.

What's possible with the SkyScan 1272, High-Resolution Micro-CT equipped with an 11MP camera and a sample changer (16 items)?

  • Visualize: Internal structure of relatively large specimen --> Up to 7 cm height and 7.5 cm diameter
  • Analyze: Particle features, pore features, homogeneity of distributions 
  • Size limitation: Smallest detectable size 0.45 micron (1 pixel); Reconstructed volume 11840x11840x2150 pixels
  • Density limitation: Attenuation is measured: combination of atomic number and density

 

Meet the expert:
Arno Wilbers is Sr Scientist Process Analysis and Statistics at DSM Resolve. Within this role he also is partly involved in the morphology group were he extracts relevant information from digital images (focused on material properties like particle size distributions). He is also responsible for building expertise using Micro-CT.
