Project description

A nanofocus X-ray tomograph is a device that allows non-destructive scanning of the interior of materials and objects with a spatial resolution better than one micrometer. This project proposal aims at the development of peripheral equipment at the new nanotomograph of the UGent which will allow to study samples under specific conditions such as controlled temperature, level of humidity, atmospheric pressure, atmospheric composition, tensile forces, etc…
