By using high technology an X-ray microtomograph (micro-CT) was created as a simply usable, desktop instrument. The micro-CT is a laboratory system for non-destructive three-dimensional microscopy, giving true spatial resolution over a million times more detailed than the medical CT-scanners.

    Conventional X-ray microradiography and microtomography are based on X-ray attenuation inside an object. For light objects (in the terms of X-ray absorption) much better way would be to use phase contrast, rather than attenuation contrast. Recently it has been shown that one can obtain phase by...

    A hard x-ray imaging microscope with a spatial resolution of 0.12 μm was developed and tested using synchrotron radiation. The microscope can be operated in either dark-field or bright-field mode. Phase contrast is employed in the dark-field mode while absorption contrast is used in the...
