nano3DX X-Ray Microscope

Rigaku’s nano3DX X-ray microscope features high-resolution optics and a high-power rotating anode, combined with sub-micron CCD technology. This combination allows for rapid data collection and offers the ability to switch anode materials quickly to optimize data acquisition.

The instrument offers an ultra-wide field of view and has the ability to measure relatively large samples at high resolution.

A true X-ray microscope, the nano3DX X-ray microscope images the entire sample from various angles and while doing so rebuilds a 3D image at 0.27µm resolution. The computer model enables users to visualize sections at any point on any plane, thus providing important insights into the sample’s structure.

X-ray microscopy is ideal for all types of materials, ranging from high density materials such as steels and ceramics to low density materials such as biological samples.
