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 is a 30-year-old company. Tescan has primarily developed systems in the SEM and FIB-SEM arena. The MicroCT addition to the TESCAN lineup comes from Belgium, with the 2018 acquisition of XRE, a company that was spun out of the University of Ghent...
