X-Ray Microtomography

A Bruker Skyscan 1172 is currently installed and working in an active lab. This provides computerised CT scanning with micron scale resolution, with ~1µm voxel resolution, up to 8000X8000 pixel images for each slice and resolution limit of ~0.8µm. Samples up to 27mm (or 50mm using multiple scans) can be accommodated. The instrument provides detail of internal structure non-destructively including quantitative measurements of porosity and measurement of relative density. Initial work has been carried out on active graphite and carbonaceous materials.
