MicroXCT-200

Introduction



High Resolution and Contrast; Large Sample Size and Shape Flexibility; Automated Multiple Point Imaging

The MicroXCT-200 is a versatile 3D X-ray imaging system suited for non-destructive analysis of a large variety of samples. Its unique design allows for high resolution imaging for relatively large samples. Its detectors are tailored to image both high and low absorption materials. The MicroXCT-200 provides the unique high resolution 3D imaging ability that allows analysis and visualization of internal fine 3D structures in intact samples, which is not possible with typical surface analysis tools like the AFM, SEM or conventional CT systems.


Highlights


MicroXCT-200–All-purpose, High Resolution, Non-destructive 3D X-ray Imaging System

The MicroXCT-200 is an all-purpose, high resolution, non-destructive 3D X-ray imaging system. Uniquely designed high resolution lens detectors allow for high resolution and high contrast imaging of small and larger samples. These lens detectors provide superior contrast even for low absorption materials. The MicroXCT-200 is equipped with multiple magnification detectors for easy zoom in during imaging. The various magnifications provide immense flexibility in available fields of views and resolutions for a large variety of sample sizes. In addition, multiple point tomography using recipes enables imaging without continuous user interaction, allowing the instrument to operate 24-7.

The MicroXCT-200 is a versatile system that is suitable for both industrial and research applications. The ability to non-destructively image a large variety of sample sizes at various levels of resolution has enabled its wide utility in various fields including life science, materials imaging, and semiconductor package FA, as well as oil and gas rock modeling applications.
