In the Micro-CT laboratory, biological, paleontological, and geological objects are analyzed using computer-assisted methods. The laboratory is a hub both for research at the museum and for the digitisation of the scientific collections. In addition to various devices for three-dimensional scanning (a Phoenix Nanotom S X-Ray tomograph, an Artec Spider and an Artec EVA hand-held scanner), the laboratory has 12 powerful workstations for processing and analyzing the raw data using special 3D …
GFZ - German Research Centre for Geosciences
For characterization of pores and fractures within rocks the laboratory is equipped with an X-Ray computer tomography system (Nanotom CT), He-gas pycnometer (AccuPyc), Hg porosimeter (2000 WS), and a gas adsorption porosimeter (TS Surfer). For damage-free preparation of 1 - 2 mm² large, almost planar surfaces a broad ion beam (BIB) polisher operating with an Ar-Ion beam is operated.
