3D X-ray microtomography at LTU

Luleå University of Technology


X-ray microtomography (XMT) enables 3D in-situ imaging and characterization of materials, including minerals, rocks, metals, composites and wood, with sub-micron resolution. From the acquired 3D data it is possible to make a quantitative characterization of internal features such as porosity, cracks, grains, fibers etc., as well as determine material deformation and strain.
