X-Ray micro-CT SkyScan 1174

The SkyScan 1174 is a compact, low-cost, portable X-Ray scanner for nondestructive three dimensional microscpy. X-Ray tomography system alows to visualize and measure complete three-dimensional object structures and without sample preparation or chemical fixation. We can describe the X-ray illumination as parallel. In this approximation, each point on the shadow image contains the integration of absorption information inside the three-dimensional object along the path of the corresponding partial X-ray beam. For parallel geometry one can divide the problem of three-dimensional reconstruction from two-dimensional projections into the serial reconstruction of two-dimensional object slices from one-dimensional shadow lines. SkyScan 1174 can be connected to any Pentium-based PC by serial port or USB & FireWire. The 1174 is supplied with software for system control, X-ray radiography and 3D reconstruction. The main areas of application are metal foams, plastics, composites, diamonds defectoscopy, biomedical objects and other non-destructive testing. Specifications Object size – 5 – 30 mm in diameter, 50 mm in length (50 mm vertical travel), X-ray source – 20-50 kV, 40 W maximum power, filter holder for energy selection, X-ray detector - 1280 x 1024 x 12 bit digital x-ray camera with coupling P43 scintillator screen by motorized zoom macro lens, Spatial resolution – 6 - 30 µm pixel size, approximately 10µm low-contract resolution, Scanning time – typicaly 2 – 15 min for 512 x 512 x 512 pixels volume or 5 – 40 min for 1024 x 1024 x 1024 pixels volume, Radiation safety - < 1 μSv/h in any place of instrument surface. In SkyScan systems, using a Windows environment, the results of scanning can be saved in BMP (8 bit) or TIFF (16 bit) formats.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
