P05 Imaging

The imaging beamline (IBL) is dedicated to micro- and nanotomography at energies between 5 keV and 50 keV. The flexible design of the experimental stations allows for the investigation of samples with diameters ranging seamlessly from 100µm up to 10 mm with adequately adjusted resolution for each field of view. Phase contrast imaging methods are currently tested and will be made available in the near future.

To provide optimized setups for a broad range structural length scales, the Imaging Beamline IBL is equipped with two tomographic endstations, the micro and the nano tomography endstation. The overall length of the Imaging Beamline is 87.5 m. For tomographic measurements at higher energies up to 150 keV an additional micro tomography setup at the HEMS beamline is available.
