Xradia by ZEISS: All things X-ray microscopy

3D quantitative analysis of snow compaction

The X-ray microtomography lab at Luleå University of Technology (LTU), Sweden shares interesting insights

The research goal at the X-ray microtomography lab at Luleå University of Technology (LTU), Sweden is to develop methods and tools that help us better understand heterogeneous materials and how they behave in different environments, and at different spatial scales.

The snow sample represents fresh snow acquired only minutes after snowfall. The width of the snow crystal is approximately 0.85 mm. The width (diameter) of the center tunnel ranges from 60 micron (at the entrance) to 220 micron on the opposite side.


Inauguration of ZEISS Xradia Ultra X-ray microscope

Center of Nanoanalysis and Electron Microscopy (CENEM) at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg delighted with new research tool

The Center of Nanoanalysis and Electron Microscopy at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg recently opened its doors for the inauguration of their new ZEISS Xradia Ultra X-ray microscope.


ZEISS introduces update of LabDCT diffraction contrast tomography module for X-ray microscopy

ZEISS presents an update of LabDCT – its diffraction contrast tomography module for the ZEISS Xradia 520 Versa X-ray microscope. This imaging and analytical technique is used to obtain crystallographic information on metal alloys or polycrystalline materials. It enables non-destructive mapping of orientation and microstructure. With LabDCT, ZEISS takes diffraction contrast tomography out of the exclusive realm of the synchrotron and extends it right into the researcher’s laboratory.


Advancing the next generation of batteries

A research group at the University College London is using X-ray microscopy to study the inner-workings of batteries and fuel cells

The Electrochemical Innovation Laboratory at University College London (UCL) is using microscopy to study the inner-workings of batteries and fuel cells. ZEISS Xradia 810 Ultra enables them to study the evolution of microstructure with down to 50 nm resolution, revealing the fine details of Li-ion batteries in 3D. Combined with the high penetrating power and sub-micron resolution of ZEISS Xradia 520 Versa, the research team at UCL is able to achieve multi-scale results, relating large features in the package to the complex pore pathways within the electrode layers and separators.


Free short course: Introduction to Micro-Computed Tomography

Lectures, lunch and a visit to the μCT lab at the ESE department at Imperial College London included

Together with ZEISS the Imperial College London is offering a free short course on 14 September 2017, which introduces participants to micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) as a basic tool for experimental research in porous media.

Included are lectures and a visit to the micro-CT lab at the Department of Earth Science and Engineering of the Imperial College London.


Free Oil & Gas Webinar: Bursting the bubble on kerogen-based digital rock physics

Linking pore topography and topology using nanoscale 3D FIB-SEM and FIB-HIM imaging

In this webinar we will overview all the methodological requirements which lie behind producing high fidelity nano-scale images, before looking at how these techniques can be used to understand the differences between organic hosted pore structures seen in onshore economic US shale reservoirs and those seen in more conventional pore structures.

When: September 6th, 2017, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM PST


Correlative Microscopy – Essential Knowledge Briefing from Microscopy & Analysis

ZEISS & Wiley present free guide

This Essential Knowledge Briefing aims to provide a simple introduction to correlative microscopy. It describes the different microscopy techniques that are commonly combined together, outlines the benefits and challenges of these different combinations, and explores how correlative microscopy will develop and advance in the future.


Get ahead in the game of microscopy

Combine multiple imaging technologies from ZEISS and gain new perspectives on your sample

Microscopy is so much more than simply making small things visible. With different microscopy techniques, you can observe living cells in motion, collect three-dimensional measurements, identify chemical elements, count tiny particles, characterize surfaces, create nano structures, and look into the smallest objects without destroying them.
