The University Of Manchester Henry Moseley X-ray Imaging Facility (HMXIF)
|Dates:||22 April 2021|
|Times:||11:00 - 12:00|
|What is it:||Webinar|
|Organiser:||The University of Manchester at Harwell|
|Who is it for:||University staff, External researchers, Current University students|
|Speaker:||Dr Tim Burnett|
'HMXIF offline scanning capabilities, research examples of how different HMXIF equipment was used and why.'
This is the fifth seminar in the University of Manchester at Harwell Ideas Forum Imaging series. The aim of this series is to increase networking of academics and researchers across the Faculty of Science and Engineering and the National Laboratories. In doing so, we hope to link experienced users with new users to teach them about the University of Manchester and the Harwell National Facilities.
Dr Tim Burnett, Director of The University of Manchester's Henry Moseley X-ray Imaging facility (HMXIF) and the National Research Facility for Lab X-ray CT (NXCT.ac.uk) will talk about the capabilities of lab-based X-ray computed tomography (CT). He will introduce X-ray CT as a technique and talk about multiscale and in situ imaging from the nanoscale to the macroscale. He will describe some of the basic requirements for doing nanoscale and microscale imaging and how the different scales can be used correlatively and also connected to other techniques such as focussed ion beam (FIB) serial sectioning. Also he will discuss the considerations for setting up in situ experiments using lab CT. He will cover examples from biomaterials, composites, aerospace and nuclear alloys and geology. Lastly he will talk about the data analysis challenges that you often have to face when dealing with multiscale and in situ experiment data
This seminar will be recorded and available to watch after the event.
A zoom link will be sent to attendees the day before the seminar.
