Paper Abstract

During the last few years microtomography using synchrotron radiation (SR) has become a standard technique to characterize samples 3-dimensionally in the fields of biology, medicine and materials science. The GKSS Research Center Geesthacht, Germany, is responsible for developing and running the microtomography experiments at the SR-facility DESY, Hamburg, Germany. The application of SRμCT using attenuation-contrast at the beamlines W2/HARWI-II and BW2 of the storage ring DORIS III results in high throughput investigations. For achieving tomograms showing not only high spatial resolution but also high density resolution special emphasis was given to the stability of the used monochromators and the calibration of the total system. The influence of the photon statistic from the measurement to the tomograms is simulated and the achieved high density resolution is demonstrated showing selected results.
