MICRO-CT INSIGHTS CHANNEL

Insights and Knowledge Center.

Micro-CT stands out as a versatile and powerful imaging technique that provides critical insights into the intricate 3D microarchitecture of electronic components. This application note explores the essential role micro-CT plays in both failure analysis...

TESCAN micro-CT solutions lead the way inreal-time, 4D imaging of fast dynamic processes. Our dynamic CT solutions feature intuitive acquisition setups for long-term experiments, with hundreds of uninterrupted rotations using second-scale temporal...

Tollund Man, a remarkably preserved bog body discovered in Denmark in 1950, has fascinated researchers and the public for decades. Now, thanks to advancements in scanning technology, scientists are gaining unprecedented insights into this ancient...

When it comes to analytical approaches, TESCAN’s micro-CT and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) share common ground. Both techniques use contrast methods to analyze samples, highlighting features of interest as bright or dark phases.

Advancements in micro-CT imaging have enabled scientists to understand and observe fluid migration in complex geological materials such as soils and reservoirs. The TESCAN dynamic micro-CT systems, in particular, have provided new insights into the...

TESCAN is thrilled to be a leading presence at Interpore 2024 (May 13-16, Qingdao, China), the premier conference dedicated to porous media research. 

The study of fluid migration through porous media is essential for understanding various natural and industrial processes. These include the infiltration of rainwater into soil, the mobility of hydrocarbons in reservoirs, and the storage of e.g. carbon...

Spectral micro-CT imaging is a unique imaging modality that allows absolute element identification through K-edge imaging. This is extremely useful for differentiating between multiple contrast agents,  identifying elements in electronic components, and...

Spectral CT can be applied for detailed analysis of soil samples to identify both the components of the soil as contaminants present in the subsurface. The example below shows how high-quality conventional micro-CT provides a very detailed view of the...

Although a great tool for structural characterization of samples, conventional micro-CT can struggle to provide contrast between minerals with similar effective atomic number (the “total” average atomic number of the mineral) and/or density. A well-known...

TESCAN has been at the vanguard of spectral CT technology, continuously improving both hardware and software. Over the past year, we have explored new ways to provide elemental and compositional information that compliments the high-quality structural...

We recently had the pleasure of filming a video with University of Pau (UPPA) in the beautiful south of France. The DMEX Centre for X-ray Imaging at UPPA is our first customer to install a TESCAN UniTOM XL with the new Spectral CT option! As can be read...

Having over a decade-long hands-on experience with micro-CT, scanned hundreds of samples and being amazed by new findings of their internal structure, one thing always came back as a question: What is the chemical composition of the features I see in 3D...

In this blog series, dr. Wesley De Boever, micro-CT product marketing manager at TESCAN introduces the fundamental principles of micro-CT. In today’s blog post, we consider temporal resolution.

In this blog series, dr. Wesley De Boever, micro-CT product marketing manager at TESCAN introduces the fundamental principles of micro-CT. And there is no better topic to kick off this blog series than spatial resolution.

Spatial resolution refers to...

TESCAN, with a rich history spanning 30 years, has been a pioneer in the SEM and FIB-SEM market. The expansion into Micro CT technology was supported by the strategic acquisition of XRE in 2018, a dynamic spin-off from the University of Ghent’s Center...
