Breaking boundaries in materials science

The FiberScanner3D module, a result of collaborative innovation with the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), Switzerland, utilizes patented grating technology to bring forth a breakthrough in the high-throughput mapping of directional X-ray scattering. This module enables non-destructive 3D anisotropic structure characterization and analysis of fibrous samples, beyond the imaging resolution limits of conventional X-ray CT systems.

This technology provides access to fiber orientation and fiber alignment information without directly resolving the underlying microstructures. As a result, it opens new horizons for characterizing large-scale samples and production components, as well as for assessing their mechanical performance, and for empowering the predictive design of materials.

Expanding applications in materials science and beyond

With applications spanning from the manufacturing of sustainable materials like natural and synthetic fiber composites to biological systems exhibiting highly anisotropic structures, FiberScanner3D represents a significant leap forward in analytical imaging methods. Notably, it brings X-ray tensor tomography out of synchrotron imaging facilities and into the laboratory, expanding its accessibility and applicability.
