The new MULTISCALE X-ray nanotomograph SKYSCAN 2214 covers the widest range of object sizes and spatial resolutions in one single instrument. It opens unique possibilities for 3D imaging and exact modeling of geological materials in oil and gas exploration, composite materials, Li batteries, fuel cells, electronic assemblies, as well as ex-vivo preclinical applications like in lung imaging or tumour vascularization.
The instrument allows scanning and 3D non-destructive reconstruction of internal microstructure of objects as large as >300mm in diameter as well submicron resolution for small samples. The world’s fastest hierarchical 3D reconstruction software speeds-up imaging object’s internal microstructure 10-100 times compare to traditionally used algorithms or GPU-accelerated reconstruction.
The system contains “open type” [pumped] X-Ray source with <0.5 microns spot size and diamond window. It can be equipped with one to four X-Ray detectors: flat-panel for large objects, 11Mp cooled CCD with wide field of view, 11Mp cooled CCD with medium field of view, 8Mp cooled CCD for highest spatial resolution. Automatically variable acquisition geometry and phase-contrast enhancement allow obtaining best possible quality in relatively short scanning time.
