We analyze and characterize all solid materials such as metal, salts, fibres, plastics, paper, building material and paint. Furthermore, we examine biological materials such as plant fibres, fungus and microorganisms including moist and water-soaked test materials.
Testing and analysis of surfaces, structures, fractures, particles, impurities etc.
Together with the universities and the ESS Lighthouses:
- SOLID (DTU)
- SMART (AU)
- Q-MAT (KU)
We act as a gateway to world-class large-scale facilities like ESS, MAX IV and EU-XFEL. That way we can support companies, where the requirements succeed the possibilities in the available laboratory instruments.
3D X-ray tomography
Characterization of materials using 3D X-ray microscopy.
Advanced Neutron and X-ray science
A non-destructive technique giving 3D images of the internal structure of materials and components.
Digital X-ray inspection
Digital X-ray inspection of everything from laser welds and microchips to paintings.
Optical 3D surface topography
Optical roughness measurement of surfaces, with a special 3D microscope.
Aid within specific applications in R&D, quality assurance, and materials testing.
Method to determine the three-dimensional atomic structure in chemical compounds and proteins.
Tool usable for purposes like the evaluation of surfaces or inspection of scratches on metal.
Scanning electronic microscope
A versatile tool to characterize microstructural features of samples from 100pm-100μm length scales.
SAXS - Small-angle X-ray Scattering
A technique for registration of scattered radiation applicable to a broad range of particle sizes.
