MicroXCT-400– High Resolution and Contrast, Large Sample Size Range For Imaging During In-situ Experiments
The MicroXCT-400 is an all-purpose, high resolution, non-destructive 3D X-ray imaging system uniquely designed for imaging various sample sizes as well as imaging during in-situ experiments. Specially designed high resolution lens detectors allow for high resolution and high contrast imaging of larger samples. Additional travel of the source and detector stages, and input baffles for the spacious enclosure allow for unprecedented ability to image samples during in-situ experiments involving test fixtures.
Like the MicroXCT-200, the MicroXCT-400 is equipped with multiple lens detectors, as well as variable geometric magnification, for easy zooming. It is a versatile system that is well-suited for research and development in both academic and industrial settings.
- Non-destructive 3D imaging
- Imaging during in-situ experiments
- Heavy load sample stage and extended source and detector stage travel
- High spatial resolution down to <1 µ and .56 µm pixel size
- Minimal dependence of resolution on sample size
- Minimal need for sample preparation
- Easy navigation through multiple magnification detector system
- Continuous operation through automated multiple point tomography and repetitive scanning
- Robust and low maintenance system
- High speed reconstruction
All MicroXCTs are equipped with robust, maintenance free closed tube X-ray sources, multiple lens detector systems that enable easy zooming in with high resolution after low resolution scans, and highly stable and repeatable sample stages. The lenses are uniquely designed to give superior contrast even for low Z materials. The various magnifications also provide immense flexibility in available fields of views and resolutions for a large variety of sample sizes. In addition, these systems are designed to have significantly diminished cone angle artifact as opposed to traditional CT systems using flat panel detectors.
The MicroXCT-400 offers the added ability for in-situ imaging of encapsulated or larger biomedical samples. A greater sample size and field of view range is available for in-situ studies.
The extended travel and large load capacity accomodate sample sizes up to 200 mm X 200 mm making it an ideal tool for examining PCB mounted packages.
The extended travel stage and large load capacity provide unparalleled system flexibility with excellent contrast and resolution for environmental analysis and in-situ experiments.
The system supports larger and heavier core samples for pore connectivity and microstructure modeling. In-situ sample manipulation is supported to image rocks and cores under pressure or stress conditions.
