ZEISS Xradia Synchrotron Family

ZEISS Xradia Synchrotron solutions enable users to avoid costly and time-consuming in-house development by bringing nanoscale X-Ray imaging to the synchrotron facility. The ultra-bright, adjustable X-Ray beams available at current synchrotron facilities are combined with proprietary X-Ray optics and a known 3D X-Ray microscopy platform.

With a range of contrast settings, users can achieve quick, non-destructive 3D imaging with a resolution of <30 nm. The 3D imaging microscopes of the Xradia Synchrotron series encompass a wide energy range from mild to hard X-Rays.

Highlights

Xradia 800 Synchrotron: Hard X-Ray Nanotomography

Without the requirement for cutting or sectioning at the region of interest, 3D tomographic imaging using X-Rays offers comprehensive volumetric data on interior structures.

The Xradia 800 Synchrotron, which operates in the 5-11 keV energy range, can photograph a wide range of samples with a resolution of <30 nm, comprising battery and fuel cell electrodes, catalysts and hard and soft tissue.

Advanced techniques, including XANES spectro-microscopy for 3D chemical mapping and in situ imaging on the Xradia 800 Synchrotron, help to analyze materials in real-world settings.

Xradia 825 Synchrotron: Soft X-Ray Nanotomography

3D tomographic imaging in the soft X-Ray range, which includes the water window up to 2.5 keV, is appropriate for structural imaging of entire cells and tissues.

Cryogenic sample management allows users to image in a frozen, hydrated condition, reducing radiation damage and keeping the material as near to its natural state as feasible. Chemical state mapping of organic and inorganic materials, as well as imaging of magnetic domains, are also used.
