ZEISS Xradia 800 Ultra X-ray Microscope

The Xradia 800 Ultra X-Ray microscope from ZEISS helps obtain spatial resolution down to 50 nm. It is considered the highest among laboratory-based X-Ray imaging systems. Matchless performance in an ultra-high-resolution lab-based system could be obtained with the help of non-destructive 3D imaging. This plays a considerable role in breakthrough research that is performed currently.

The ground-breaking Xradia Ultra architecture features X-Ray energy ranging up to 8 keV and absorption and phase contrast imaging modes, with the help of optics that have been adapted from the synchrotron. Xradia 800 Ultra helps to achieve peerless in situ and 4D capabilities considered necessary for examining material evolution in the past few years.

The limits of X-Ray imaging have been utilized in different industrial applications, natural resources, life sciences and materials science that are extended by Xradia 800 Ultra.


Xradia 800 Ultra consists of a resolution as fine as 50 nm, offering insight into microscopic structures and processes that were not accessible previously with the standard lab-based X-Ray technology.

Functioning with 8 keV X-Rays offers excellent penetration and contrast for a range of materials. This allows users to note structures and materials present in their natural state.

The Zernike technique has been applied by ZEISS integrated phase contrast technology, improving the visibility of grain boundaries and material interfaces when absorption contrast seems to be low. This offers users visibility of nano- and ultra-structures in the absence of staining.

Trustworthy internal 3D information, otherwise only accessible with harmful techniques such as cross-sectioning, is been delivered by ZEISS Xradia 800 Ultra. In situ studies could be executed with comfort via the atmospheric sample surrounding and huge working distance.


  • The Scout-and-Scan Control System, with a simple workflow-based user interface, is appropriate for the central imaging laboratory where users may exhibit an extensive range of experience levels
  • Develop, make and test scheduled synchrotron experiments in the laboratory to increase the efficiency of restricted availability of synchrotron beam time
  • Non-destructive 3D X-Ray imaging enables repeated imaging of the same sample allowing direct observation of microstructural evolution
  • Switchable field-of-view varies from 15 to 60 µm
  • Automated image alignment available for tomographic reconstruction
  • Absorption and Zernike phase contrast imaging modes are available
  • High resolution down to 50 nm has been retained for imaging of samples inside in situ devices
