Win a Week of Dynamic CT Beamtime for Your Sustainability Research


At TESCAN, our mission is to help scientists and engineers solve global sustainability challenges with innovative instrumentation that enables them to discover the secrets of matter at the micro and nanoscale. To help fulfil that mission, we are holding our 2nd dynamic CT beamtime competition, following our first one in 2021.


Sebastian Gruber (Food Process Engineering, TU Munich, Germany), winner of the 2021 competition, “Using the unique capabilities of the TESCAN DynaTOM, we were able to visualize the 3D structural changes occurring in lyophilization processes in real time, using an in-situ freeze-drying setup.​ The experiments gave us unique insights in these processes, in a way no other analytical method could. The results acquired in just one week of beamtime meant a huge boost for our research and provided unique data for publications and participation at scientific events.”


The 2023 competition will focus on all aspects of sustainability, including:

  • battery research
  • green energy
  • CO2
  • hydrogen storage
  • recycling
  • novel materials that reduce environmental impact
  • or any other sustainability-focused project!


Researchers from both industry and academia are invited to submit their proposal and tell us why you need access to dynamic 3D X-ray imaging! Winners receive:

  • One week of exclusive beamtime experience at TESCAN’s Ghent, Belgium campus
  • Support of the TESCAN technical team that pioneered dynamic micro-CT technology
  • Accommodations for up to two researchers for an entire week
  • Daily lunch at the TESCAN XRE facilities
  • Outings in the historic city of Ghent

(Travel to and from Ghent is not included)




Proposals must be submitted by Wednesday, November 1st, 2023.

Winners will be announced in December 2023.
