X-ray CT analysis for geological samples

X-ray CT (computed tomography) is a non-destructive 3D imaging technique. It is often used to study rocks and fossils. X-ray CT analysis results can help analyze phase fraction of rocks, porosity or pore network in sandstones, oil and water distribution in drill cores, and support paleontology by analyzing fossils quickly and non-destructively.

Application examples:

  • Rock phase fraction analysis
  • Porosity analysis
  • Grain size analysis
  • Fossil imaging
