Dr. Mark Rivers at GSECARS hosts a virtual hands-on tutorial sessions on synchrotron computed microtomography.
This event included an introductory lecture on synchrotron radiation and computed microtomography. There was then a tour of the 13-BM-D experimental station at the APS, where a sample was loaded for measuring. Doug Schmitt from Purdue University gave a brief talk about the origin and importance of the sample. Data on several samples were then collected. This was followed by a talk about the tomography reconstruction process, and a demonstration using the data collected on Doug’s samples.
