Phase-contrast computed tomography system 
60 kV X-ray source 
4000 * 2672 pixel 12 bit detector
5.7 µm min. voxel size


The SkyScan 1294 desktop phase-contrast X-ray microtomograph was installed at the FH OÖ Wels Campus in January 2015. The system includes a specially designed micro-focus X-ray source, a 11 megapixel X-ray camera and a precise three-grating Talbot-Lau X-ray interferometer for simultaneous extraction of absorption contrast, differential phase contrast and dark-field images. This phase-contrast system will primarily be used for detailed investigation of polymeric and biologic material systems. The technical data on the device is listed below:

  • 60-kV-microfocus tube with a focal spot diameter of 33 µm
  • 4000 * 2672 pixel 12 bit detector
  • Measurement of materials with low density < 2 g/cm³
  • Minimum voxel size: 5.7 µm
  • Sample diameter < 20 mm
  • Sample length < 60 mm
