Detailed Description

The High Flux Bay has been specifically designed for time lapse X-ray Computed Tomography. To facilitate high-speed XCT scans, this system is fitted with high flux X-ray targets, high speed cabling and solid state drives for increased bandwidth. This allows rapid data transfer, storage, reconstruction and processing. Three different x-ray sources are available to optimise scanning parameters for high resolution or high speed scan acquisition.


Imaging of samples of all materials, typically a few cm in size. Installation of most of the in-situ rigs for time-lapse tomography during tension, compression, or torsion of materials. Capable of installing the fluid-flow rig for time-lapse scanning of flow through materials, such as rock cores.

Source voltage depening on installed x-ray target between: 50 – 225 kV, max power: 450 W. Voxel size: 2 – 120 μm with a field of view between 8mm and 200 mm, respectively. Heavy duty 5-axis sample manipulator stage with 100kg load capacity. Detector: 16-bit, 4000 x 4000 pixels . Labyrinths available for external control and monitoring of user-installed equipment, such as in-situ rigs.
