TU Delft

X-ray Imaging Facility The X-ray Imaging Facility at Delft University of Technology (TUD) has been instrumental over the past ten years for applied earth science and civil engineering research in the Netherlands using X-ray computed tomography (CT).  TUD offers X-ray imaging and laboratory facilities which allow for 3D imaging from the decimetre- to the micrometre-scale, as well as for … Continued

Ghent University

The five systems available include: 1) Hector: the most versatile of the systems, and therefore also the most frequently used system. It consists of a 240 kV X-ray tube and a large flat-panel detector. The sample stage can hold samples of up to 80 kg. The highest achievable resolution is approximately 3 μm; 2) EMCT: … Continued

Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden – Rossendorf e.V. (HZDR)

We grant access to our CT scanner equipped with the spectral detector and provide support for experiment planning, data analysis and interpretation. Workstations with specialized reconstruction and image analysis software are available. A fully equipped sample preparation laboratory operated by specialized staff who have accumulated experience in standardizing sample preparation is also in place.  Details … Continued

Helmholtz-Zentrum Potsdam Deutsches GeoForschungs­Zentrum (GFZ)

The electron microscopy facility at the GFZ has been a focal point and driving force for earth sciences, physics and chemistry research in Germany for more than 20 years. The GFZ PISA facility provides earth science-specific, state-of-the-art electron microscopes that allow various workflows for structural, crystallographic and chemical imaging both in two- and three-dimensions.  The GFZ EM facility hosts a FIB-SEM … Continued

University of Grenoble (UGA)

Laboratoire 3SR conducts cutting-edge research on Solid Mechanics, mainly in the fields of material science and structure/construction engineering, in areas of high societal relevance, such as health, energy, transport, risk and civil engineering. More specifically, 3SR is a pioneer in the use and development of x-ray tomography (lab scanner, in-situ testing, image analysis including DIC, … Continued

Centre national de la recherche scientifique – University of Montpellier

The CrystalProbe-Montpellier infrastructure is a field emission gun (FEG) SEM equipped with an ultra-fast and ultra-sensitive EBSD camera – the Symmetry from Oxford Instruments – and an EDS detector allowing simultaneous crystallographic and chemical mapping of thin sections or polished sections. The CNRS-INSU platform that hosts the CrystalProbe-Montpellier infrastructure has high-quality electron microscopy and sample preparation facilities.  Science team Fabrice … Continued

Université de Pau et des Pays de L’Adour (UPPA)

MEX Centre for X-ray Imaging The DMEX Centre for X-ray Imaging hosts three X-ray tomographs, enabling to cover a large panel of spatial resolutions (0.3–150µm) and sample sizes. While samples can be tested under ambient conditions, the centre has built up a unique competence in conducting in situ / in operando testing.  Examples are the … Continued
