Research

Because microCT is a nondestructive characterization technique, it represents a powerful investigation tool in many different applications, especially in the area of material science as well as geology or biomaterials. Through image analysis processing tools, it is possible to obtain quantitative information from the investigated samples. In particular, geometrical or morphological features inside the sample volume can be analysed and useful specific parameters can be extracted. There is a wide range of industrial fields of interest, from mechanical components and electronic devices, to aerospace manufacturing. Concerning materials science, a microCT analysis is capable to analyze failure mechanisms, micro-cracks formation and propagation, internal defects, morphological details, stress-strain behavior, and is generally useful when a correlation between physical and microscopic properties is required. In the field of earth science, the investigation of rocks and soils pore structure is important for both hydrogeology and petroleum engineering. Different kinds of porous media, like metallic and polymeric foams, can be also investigated by microCT. Other interesting applications of microCT are in the field of biology, food science, wood industry and conservation of archeological finds.
