Foams and Composites Applications

    X-ray CT (computed tomography) provides 3D images of foams and composites non-destructively. You can obtain thousands of slices in one scan without sectioning the sample. This allows us to analyze the pore size, shape, and cell wall thickness of foams or filler and fiber size, shape, distribution, and orientation in composites.
