Our facility houses an X5000 high resolution microCT system with a twin head 225 kV x-ray source and a Dexela area detector (3073 x 3889 pixels). We can achieve 1µm resolution if the sample is small enough, see our FAQ for more details about resolution. Funding of this facility was provided in part by the University of Minnesota's Infrastructure Investment Initiative. We welcome applications from academic research within and beyond the University of Minnesota as well as from industry and government agencies. This nondestructive technique is useful in many fields including Geology, Paleontology, Anthropology, Engineering, Veterinary Science, and Composite Materials.
