This year the CMCA will be leading a WA-based consortium applying for funding through ARC LIEF to provide advanced X-ray micro-CT capabilities for local researchers mainly in the physical and geo-sciences.
To provide more information on the capabilities of the latest generation micro-CT instruments, Richard Trett (Xradia) will discuss the principles of X-ray CT and the unique architecture of Xradia X-ray Microscopes.
Richard will look at how this equipment relates to existing technologies and complementary characterisation techniques. Extensive examples of the use of CT in the area of earth and materials science will be used to illustrate the exciting opportunities that CT brings to these fields. There will also be examples of in-situ experimentation and high resolution work in larger samples.
The proposed micro-CT capabilities will complement CMCA's live-animal micro-CT due to be online by May 2011, and existing CSIRO and UWA facilities. All those interested in the Centre's plans to acquire micro-CT capabilities are encouraged to attend.
WHEN: Thursday 10 March, 4.00-5.00pm
WHERE: Room 2.15, Level 2, Physics building
CONTACT: Dana Crisan (Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis) (+61 8) 6488 2770
Refreshments will be served afterwards in the CMCA.
