ZEISS delivers tomographic imaging with results 4x faster for geologists & geological industries

Iterative reconstruction with ZEISS OptiRecon

The new module for the ZEISS Xradia Versa 500-series of 3D X-ray microscopes (XRM) will allow users to acquire high quality images in one-quarter the time: ZEISS OptiRecon uses a new, advanced iterative reconstruction technique. Now you can make the optimal choice for your requirements: same quality images four times faster, or superior quality in the same amount of time as standard image acquisition.

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.

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.
