Project description

Optical and fluorescence microscopy visualizes pores in 2D. CT data allows characterization of complex pores in 3D. This urges for a calibrated system by fusing the standard fluorescence and petrographical microscopy images with 3D data of the high-resolution CT scanners. By fusion of XRF data, a correct characterization of geomaterials will be obtained in a structurally and chemically calibrated way.
