High-Resolution Electron Microscopy

CT-NANO has the best resolution available on the market at this energy level, which allows the inspection of materials or structures which were not possible before.

The CT-NANO is a fully operating scanning electron microscope with capabilities of Nano-CT measurements on specimens like light-metal-alloys and fiber composites.

It delivers Voxel-sizes in ranges from 30 nm to 10 μm, a geometrical magnification up to 50nm (FWHM) and a maximum photon energy of 30 keV. An EDS-Detector provides an additional correlation between XRF signal of specimen and reconstructed volume of the CT-NANO.

With a direct-converting detector and a size-optimized field-of-view, the CT-NANO provides a representative test volume. The CT-NANO X-ray microscope is based on a scanning electron microscope and uses the electron-beam for generating the x-ray at an ultra-sharp needle with a focal spot size of 70 nm.

Significantly better performance and  results than standard submicron CT. NanoCT provides - better than polish cut images - 3D Data about precise volume  information e.g. of different phases.

Operating & Imaging Software

Hardware and Software Made for each other

The best hardware needs a great software program to run it and to help you get the best results out of your investment.

We create our own software, as well as recommend software from third parties based on your specific use case.
