Webinar: A trip into the heart of industry materials with multiscale synchrotron X-ray tomography, 15 June 2021 at 11AM


Tomography lets us non-destructively look inside materials, from soft matter to metallic alloys. This the first in a series of ESRF-Industry webinars: Synchrotron X-rays: Empowering Industrial R&I.

The extremely brilliant synchrotron source (EBS) of the European Synchrotron (ESRF) delivers X-rays for fast and multiresolution tomography. This 3D non-destructive technique images the inside of bulk samples. In this webinar, we will introduce the multiscale capabilities for tomography at the ESRF.

Our tomography X-ray beamlines, all accessible by industry, cover a wide range from 10 nanometers to several microns in resolution. The different X-ray energies available coupled with different types of contrasts, using the special properties of synchrotron X-rays, allow a huge range of samples from soft matter to metallic alloys to be scanned, offering applications in every industry sector from energy and electronics, aerospace to food biomedical and health and engineering. The ultra-fast acquisition opens temporal resolution and enables 4D studies using specific sample environments for in situ experiments.

These state-of-the-art instruments can be booked for industrial purposes and ESRF dedicated staff are available to provide you with all required information, scientific and technical support, including a mail-in service.
