3D X-ray Computer Tomography Scanner

Nikon Xtek High Flux Bay

Our three Nikon Metrology systems are best suited for larger samples, from a few mm diameter to approximately 20 cm diameter. With their high-power 225 kV and 320 kV x-ray sources, they can achieve transmission of sample up to approximately 30 mm steel. Our two walk-in bay systems are additionally well suited for in-situ work, using one of our in-situ rigs.

Nikon Metrology “High Flux” bay. With the large 4000 x 4000 pixel detector, the bay can achieve high quality images. Three alternative sources can be used: a 225 kV, 450 W rotating reflection target for higher flux, a standard 225 kV, 225 W static reflection target, and a 160kV transmission target for higher resolution (up to 3 µm). The Bay is designed for in-situ work and can take the majority of our in-situ rigs.

Detailed Description

The High Flux Bay has been specifically designed for time lapse X-ray Computed Tomography (XCT). 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.

Key Features
  • Resolution capability from 2 to 119 microns for specimen areas from < 8 mm up to 202 mm diameters respectively
  • Optional X-ray sources available
  • Housed within a custom-built walk-in radiation bay
  • The heavy-duty 5-axis sample manipulator stage with a 100 kg load capacity
  • Labyrinths are available for the external control and monitoring of user-installed equipment
  • High specification network and computing for increased bandwidth allowing rapid data transfer, storage, reconstruction and processing
