Imaging techniques can be applied to a vast range of real-world research and development challenges as diverse as pharmaceuticals, food, engineering, oil recovery and consumer product development.
It can provide vital information such as density, physical structure, chemical composition, chemical states, and crystallographic perfection which can all be mapped in two, or increasingly, in three dimensions.
Depending upon where the beam is focused, imaging techniques allow you to probe both the exterior and interior structure of materials, up to a molecular level, allowing you to see internal or hidden components. This means that dense, very small or sensitive materials can be penetrated with minimal damage to the sample.
We have specialist beamlines to accommodate a wide range of imaging requirements, enabling the rapid acquisition of high-resolution images. These can be combined with other techniques - all co-located at the Diamond site - to acquire even deeper insights for your research.
Our dedicated team of expert scientists are accustomed to working with the challenges faced by industry. They can help you find solutions for even the most challenging of projects, supporting you from initial consultation through to experimental planning, data collection, analysis and image modelling.
Here at Diamond we have a range of different imaging techniques to suit a vast array of research needs. These include:
