April 2, 2017 – noon to 4:30 p.m.
Workshop at University of Houston on pore scale imaging, modelling and experimentation
Pore scale imaging has developed over the last 20 years from a primarily academic technique used to visualize pore structures for fundamental research into an increasingly crucial industrial tool. It is now possible to routinely image, both in 2D and 3D, structures and processes occurring from the whole core down to the sub-nanometer scale (figure 1).
In this workshop, we will outline the state of the art technologies used in this analysis, including light, charged ion and X-ray microscopy, and some of the research challenges being tackled by these developments, including in situ experimentation (figure 2), multi-scale and correlative techniques, including groundbreaking ways of moving between scales using modern data science techniques.
Thought leaders in both academia and industry will showcase their most recent advances, including from:
- University of Houston
- Weatherford Laboratories
- Zeiss Microscopy
- Australian National University
