  • Hard X-ray Nanotomography

    Xradia 800 Synchrotron

    Hard X-ray Nanotomography

    Image a wide range of your samples including battery and fuel cell electrodes, catalysts, and soft and hard tissue with resolution less than 30 nm. Operating in the 5-11 keV energy range, Xradia 800 Synchrotron is ideally suited for advanced techniques such as XANES spectro-microscopy for 3D chemical mapping and in situ imaging to enable you to study materials under real operating conditions.

  • Soft X-ray Nanotomography

    Xradia 825 Synchrotron

    Soft X-ray Nanotomography

    Acquire 3D tomographies of whole cells and tissues in the soft X-ray range using the water window. Cryogenic sample handling enables you to image in a frozen hydrated state, minimizing effects of radiation damage while maintaining the sample as close to its natural state as possible. For even more applications include chemical state mapping of both organic and inorganic materials and imaging of magnetic domains.
