Get access to the most advanced X-ray and neutron characterisation methods. This includes analysis using tomography, small angle scattering, XRD, chemical composition and many more.

X-ray and neutron technologies are complementary and can be used to study various kinds of materials and properties in materials.

We have access to several advanced x-ray and neutron characterisation facilities. This also includes advanced equipment at Danish and international research facilities.

On top of that, we have built deep technical skill sets and a mediator structure that enables us to solve your challenges using results from these advanced facilities.

Long list of methods for X-ray and neutron analysis

Some of the characterisation methods you can benefit from are:

  • Tomography (3D x-ray CT, neutron CT) 
    • Non-destructive 3D imaging of samples in sizes 1-500 mm, with a resolution down to 250 nm. Samples in polymers, steel, and aerospace materials.
  • Small angle X-ray/neutron scattering (SAXS, SANS)
    • Probe structures 1-100 nm.
  • Powder X-ray Diffraction (XRD)
    • Phase identification of crystalline materials, average bulk composition, unit cell dimensions. 
  • Chemical composition (XRF, EDS, XPS, XANES, EXAFS)
    • Methods to probe elemental and chemical composition, including binding state of the different elements.
  • Trace element analysis (PGAA) 
    • Detection of PPM and PPB trace elements in materials – including hydrogen.
  • Fibre orientations in e.g. FRP plastics (DDF, SAXS, CT)
    • Mapping of local fibre orientations inside materials.

And the list of characterisation methods goes on …
