Technical Terms

X-ray microtomography is an X-ray CT scanner that provides a 3D model with a micrometer range of pixel (voxel) sizes. It can visualize three-dimensional (3D) structures at high resolution. X-ray microtomography is also called micro-computed tomography, micro-CT, or high-resolution CT. Two types of equipment are available: one is for scanning by rotating the sample, and the other is for scanning by rotating the X-ray tube and detector around the sample.
Applications of X-ray microtomography: Electronic materials, composite materials, pharmaceutical, biology, electronic devices, geology, food and seeds, polymeric materials, fibers, casting, additive manufacturing
