The National Laboratory for X-ray Micro Computed Tomography (CTLab) has a number of X-ray micro-computed tomography (micro CT) instruments that probe the 3D structure of materials, with resolutions down to several hundred nanometres on the sub-micron instrument, up to samples tens of centimetres long on the larger systems.
While CTLab excels in visualising captured 3D structures in virtual form, we also have two high fidelity 3D printers to bring virtual objects back to material reality, ready for presentation, teaching, testing and further prototyping.
The ability to measure, charactise and quantify 3D physical structures is one of CTLab's core strengths. We have always distinguished ourselves by our ability to quantify, with this ability built on the twin platforms of (a) very high quality imaging and (b) a unique suite of software tools for analysis and quantification.
