The lab is equipped with the GE Nanotom 180S micro-tomography device and additional computers and workstations used for scan reconstruction process and image analysis purposes.

Basic parameters of the CT device are:

  • maximum resolution which could be achieved is 0.5 ┬Ám,
  • maximum X-ray source voltage 180 kV,
  • two materials for exit window may be used: tungsten or molybdenum,
  • maximum size of scanned sample is ~10 cm in diameter and height,
  • maximum weight of scanned sample 2 kg.

Sophisticated software for image analysis is available in the lab: VG Studio Max, Avizo and GE Datos package used for reconstruction purposes. We are using also free software: Fiji and Paraview.
