X-ray Nanotomograph

MULTISCALE X-ray Nano-CT System

The new MULTISCALE X-ray nanotomograph SKYSCAN 2211 covers the widest range of object sizes and spatial resolutions in one single instrument. It opens unique possibilities for 3D imaging and exact modeling of geological materials in oil and gas exploration, composite materials, fuel cells, electronic assemblies, etc.

The instrument allows scanning and 3D non-destructive reconstruction of internal microstructure of objects as large as >200mm in diameter as well as submicron resolution for small samples. The world’s fastest hierarchical 3D reconstruction software speeds-up imaging object’s internal microstructure 10-100 times compare to traditionally used algorithms or GPU-accelerated reconstruction.

The system contains "open type" [pumped] X-ray source with submicron spot size and two X-ray detectors: flat-panel for large objects and 11Mp cooled CCD for scanning with highest resolution. Automatically variable acquisition geometry and phase-contrast enhancement allow obtaining best possible quality in relatively short scanning time.

The full range of Bruker-microCT software is supplied, including fast volumetric reconstruction, software for 2D / 3D quantitative analysis and for realistic 3D visualization. Supplied software also includes volume rendering and easy creation of realistic movies with possibility for virtual flight around and inside the reconstructed object's microstructure. Reconstruction results can be sent to iPad/iPhone/iPodTouch or Android devices. Special software for mobile platforms performs volume rendering and virtual cut of objects with touch screen gesture controls.
