X-Ray Microtomography


Micro-CT (computed tomography) is a non-destructive imaging technique that provides high-resolution, three-dimensional images of small objects or samples. It operates on the same principles as medical CT scanners but is designed for much smaller specimens, typically on the scale of millimeters to a few centimeters. The micro-CT rotates a sample while capturing X-ray projections from various angles, which are then reconstructed into a detailed 3D image using advanced computer algorithms. Micro-CT is used in various fields such as materials science, biology, archaeology, and geology, enabling researchers to visualize internal structures, porosity, and other fine details without the need for sample sectioning. Its versatility and precision make it a valuable tool for non-invasive investigation and analysis at the microscale.
