3D X-ray Microscope Laboratory

Overview of Services

The 3D X-ray Microscope Laboratory provides access to a Zeiss Xradia 510 VERSA High-resolution 3D X-Ray microscope for imaging the internal structures of physical and biological objects. Using both geometrical and optical magnification, the Xradia 510 VERSA is able to maintain submicron resolution at large working distances which enables a minimum achievable voxel size of 70 nanometers with 0.7 micrometer of true spatial resolution.
