A New Dimension To micro-CT
SPECTRAL CT provides contrast where conventional micro-CT cannot, and reveals information on a sample’s composition by looking at the entire x-ray spectrum used to image a sample.
SPECTRAL CT reveals this chemical information at any point inside a sample in a non-destructive manner, and combines it with high quality,structural information on the same sample.
For the first time in a commercial micro-CT system, we can acquire chemical data, such as identification of precious metals for mining and recycling, differentiate between different polymers in engineered samples, or optimize contrast in biological samples.

Absolute element identification without prior knowledge
Using k-edge detection, precious metals and elements can be identified without any knowledge on the sample.
Provides contrast where conventional CT cannot
When conventional CT cannot differentiate between materials, SPECTRAL CT performs multi-energy analysis in a single scan.
A treasure of information at your fingertips
Compare spectra with a reference database or each other, to gain info on composition, concentration and density.

SPECTRAL Suite - Powerful Analytical Tools For SPECTRAL Data
TESCAN SPECTRAL suite exposes the power of PolyDET II, providing tools for acquisition, reconstruction and analysis of SPECTRAL data. Through direct communication with AcquilaTM, TESCAN’s micro-CT control software, data can be acquired at any point inside the sample using an intuitive VOI scanning workflow.
Reconstructed spectra can be visualized, analyzed and compared, allowing for advanced analytical tools such as multi-energy CT, k-edge detection or extracting atomic-number chart.

Despite an ever-expanding range of additional capabilities for micro-CT systems, the key application for micro-CT remains the production of 3D datasets of a sample’s structure or composition.
Whether these datasets are used to quantify material characteristics such as porosity, used as input for numerical models, or are simply being used to gain a better understanding of the interior of a sample, image quality remains paramount to obtaining reliable and reproducible results.
UniTOM XL SPECTRAL
At The University Of Pau
The first installation of a TESCAN UniTOM XL SPECTRAL has been performed at the University of Pau (France). Prof. Dr. Peter Moonen uses the system for multi-modal characterization of rocks and metals and is amazed by the capabilities of the TESCAN UniTOM XL.
Combining conventional and micro-CT imaging enables a whole range of novel applications for energy and mining applications.
