KU Leuven XCT Core Facility Research lines

Application fields: non-destructive testing (NDT) and quality control, study of material behaviour and its functional properties under specified environmental conditions, and production and material optimization. Covering a resolution range of 400 nm up to several hundred micrometers to unravel the internal structure, morphology, microstructural changes or damage development in materialsfrom high quality 3D XCT images.

Complex materials, composites, geopolymers, agricultural products and food, dental materials, building materials and biological tissues. Scientists using the equipment and software of the KU Leuven XCT Core Facility profit from the synergy that the collaboration with experienced users in the field provides.
