Paper Abstract

X-ray microtomography is rapidly becoming the tool of choice for three-dimensional (3D) imaging of thick structures at the 1-10 µm scale. The fast microtomography system developed at beamline 2-BM of the Advanced Photon Source (APS) is a new class of instrument offering near video-rate acquisition of tomographic data combined with pipelined processing, reconstruction, and visualization. This system can acquire and reconstruct 720 projections (1024x1024 pixels) at 0.25 deg angular increments in under 5 min using a dedicated 32-node computer cluster. At this throughput, hundreds of specimens can be imaged in a 24 h experiment. Alternatively, time-dependent 3D sample evolution can be studied on practical time scales. In this work, we present the current instrument status and the most recent application.
