Xctal 5000

X-Ray Observations Enter a New Phase

The Xctal 5000 is a new X-ray CT system that creates images of X-ray phase shifts.
In addition to the X-ray absorption information detected by conventional X-ray CT systems, this system can detect X-ray scattering and refraction information. This provides observations of fine structure across a wide field of view, and high-contrast observations of samples with no absorption differences.
This is useful for research and development of fiber reinforced resins, composite materials, and biomaterials, which are advancing through research.



A Single Scan Obtains Three Types of Images: Absorption, Dark-field, and Phase Images

A new scanning method has been adopted that can detect phase shifts from X-ray interference using a diffraction grating.

Absorption Images

2D projection image (Absorption)

Absorption images visualize X-ray absorption differences, which are also detected by conventional X-ray systems.
This enables detailed observations of shapes within the sample.

Dark-field Images

Both Wide Field of View and Detailed Structural Observations

Dark-field images visualize dispersion by fine structure.
Fine cracks can be detected with a field of view up to 100 mm in size. In addition, the system is equipped with a fiber orientation analysis function, enabling observations of fiber flow over a wide field of view.

Phase Images

Dual Observation Method for Absorption and Phase

Phase images visualize density differences.
The system is capable of high-contrast observations of samples with no absorption differences, including resin products made of different materials.
