ZEISS Xradia 810 Ultra Non-Destructive Nanoscale Imaging

Users can achieve spatial resolution down to 50 nm using ZEISS Xradia 810 Ultra X-ray microscope - the highest among lab-based X-ray imaging systems. This non-destructive 3D imaging system plays a key role in today’s breakthrough research, and provides flexibility and unparalleled performance.

With advanced X-ray optics adapted from synchrotron technology, the innovative Xradia Ultra architecture features phase and absorption contrast. Users can increase the throughput of their nanoscale imaging by up to a factor of 10 with energy at 5.4 keV, and achieve better image quality and contrast for medium to low Z samples with the lower energy of Xradia 810 Ultra.

They can accomplish advanced in situ and 4D results by studying structural evolution over time and under varying conditions, and extend the limits of exploration for materials research, natural resources, life sciences, and various industrial applications.


Highest resolution, even higher contrast, faster

ZEISS solutions provide the world’s only non-destructive 3D X-ray imaging with spatial resolution down to 50 nm in a lab instrument. Together with Zernike phase contrast and absorption, the ZEISS Xradia 810 Ultra uses advanced optics adapted from the synchrotron technology to provide better resolution and contrast for research. It enables breakthrough research by adding a key, non-destructive step to conventional imaging workflow.

The Xradia 810 Ultra delivers high contrast for studies at 5.4 keV and makes high-resolution X-ray imaging feasible for various difficult-to-image materials. Users can optimize their imaging with absorption and phase contrast for a wide range of materials, such as fuel cells, oxides, composites, polymers, biological materials, and geological samples.

ZEISS XRM, which has led the way in nanoscale X-ray imaging at synchrotrons and renowned lab facilities worldwide, provides innovative solutions to help users put their studies at the forefront of research.

The Xradia 810 Ultra optimizes the business case for XRM, whether the work is for industry or science, by making nanoscale X-ray imaging an order of magnitude faster. For central microscopy laboratories, a faster workflow enables more users to exploit the instrument in less time, and this extends XRM to a much wider base of subscribers.

Similarly, users can rapidly perform and repeat in situ and 4D studies of internal structures. These factors make these techniques feasible for various applications. If the applications are targeted, for example, digital rock physics used to study the feasibility of gas and oil extraction, the Xradia 810 Ultra provides measurements that can be used to characterize key parameters such as porosity in a matter of hours.
