Using our facility

CT scanner overview

Our CT scanners can scan samples ranging in size from a few 100 micrometer up to a few tens of cm.  This will allow you to investigate both the in- and outside of your sample. Note that because CT is a non-destructive technique, you will not need to cut open or otherwise damage your sample to investigate the inside.
