The RIGAKU Nano3DX is a X-ray microscope to measure large samples at high resolution. This is achieved with a high-power rotating anode X-ray source and a high-resolution cMOS-type detector. The instrument allopws CT reconstruction, image processing, 3D visualization and segmentation, quantitative analysis.
- 1 kW continuous rotating anode X-ray generator, complete with integral X-ray protection hood, with:
- Dual anode: Cr/Mo or any other combination that provides high versatility of analysis
- Max. source spot diameter 80 microns to minimize source drift
- Detector type: high resolution sCMOS (0.325 to 7micron/pixel resolution), with 2048x2048 pixels, pixel size 6.5x6.5 microns, 16-bit A/D converter and standard 0.325 to 2.6 μm lens, 0.66 mm × 0.66 mm FOV
- Changing pixel size from 325nm to 5200nm by replacing the lens
- Two interchangeable lenses:
1. Max. FOV 10.64 mm × 10.64 mm - Minimum pixel size 5200nm
2. Max. FOV 2.66 mm × 2.66 mm - Minimum pixel size 1300 nm
- Maximum spatial resolution achievable on a 2D graph below 500 nm
- Near-parallel beam geometry instead of conical beam geometry enlargement for projection reduction
- Maximum sample size: 20mm diameter x 40mm height
- Automatic sample holder (Automatic sample holder)
- Temperature control system and mechanical compression of sample during acquisition (temperature range RT-200°C, pressure range 1-200N maximum sample size Ø 10mm x 2mm"
