The ZEISS Xradia 810 Ultra XCT is the highest resolution lab-based x-ray tomography system that is currently commercially available.

The system permits imaging at nanometer scale by using state-of-the-art zone plate x-ray optics to achieve resolutions as fine as 50 nm. Two resolution modes are available for multi-scale imaging this extends the range of suitable samples sizes. Zernike phase contrast can be used to compliment absorption contrast to highlight sample boundaries when absorption is low.

Key features:

  • Resolution: 150 nm or 50 nm
  • Maximum field of view: 65 microns or 15 microns
  • Maximum sample size: 0.5 kg
  • Maximum Energy: 8 kV monochromatic
  • Phase-enhanced imaging
  • Can be used for in situ experiments with a range of rigs
