X-ray Computed Tomography (XCT) is athree-dimensional (3D) volume imaging technique to virtually have a look inside objects without having to slice through it (non-destructive). It is widely applied in materials science and engineering, forexample inproducts such as batteries, catalysts, foams, 3D printed materials,pharmaceutical products as tablets, etc.

Today's micro- and nano-XCTallows to go a step further in terms ofspatialresolution. Imaging of 3Dstructures below one micrometeris possible.


Combined with modern image analysis of thousands of pictures,quantitative findings are nowadays supporting industrial R&D.

In this symposium, we invite product developers, R&D managers and expertsfrom various industries to discover the XCT possibilities at SLS and realize how to use them for their R&D advantage.

There will be also information about funding opportunities for SMEs to support the measurements substantially by CALIPSOplus a European Horizon2020 program.
