Part 2 of 4: Join a Thriving XRM Community​

In April 2021, ZEISS hosted the annual X-ray Microscopy User Meeting. Although conducted virtually, more than 80 attendees from over 50 institutions across North America joined to share their experiences working with ZEISS X-ray microscopes across a broad range of applications and disciplines. This special episode of ‘3D in 3 Minutes’ presents a whirlwind tour of some of their recent work.​

Part 3 of 4: Bringing X-ray Microscopy to Your Lab

X-ray microscopy is transforming the world of materials characterization with nondestructive, high resolution 3D imaging. Are your ready to bring these capabilities to your lab? Have you considered how to fund the instrument, develop a user base, and sustain strong productivity over the many years of the instrument’s lifetime? Download the 3-section white paper mini-series below, where we’ve compiled industry insights and market data to help address these questions and more – and enable you with the confidence you need to pursue the expansion of your lab with 3D X-ray microscopy.

  • Scientific Supply and Demand: The Role of Lab-Based X-ray Microscopy in Alleviating Bottlenecks and Decreasing Risk Associated with 3D Materials Characterization Workflows
  • Bringing X-ray Microscopy to the Core Facility: Opportunities and Strategies for Writing a Compelling Funding Proposal for XRM in your Lab

Part 4 of 4: New XRM Results Published Every Day​

Scholarly publications are in many respects the ‘currency’ of science. They help describe new experiments, communicate results, and contribute to the collective knowledge of the research field. In the short video below, see the powerful impact X-ray microscopes have had by providing 3D microstructural data for numerous fields and their resulting publications.​
