Paper Abstract

A fast micro-tomography system and a high throughput micro-tomography system using state-of-the-art Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) imaging devices have been developed at SPring-8. Those systems adopt simple projection type tomography using synchrotron radiation X-ray. The fast micro-tomography system achieves a scan time around 2 s with 1000 projections, which is 15 times faster than previously developed system at SPring-8. The CMOS camera for fast tomography has 64 Giga Byte on-board memory, therefore, the obtained images must be transferred to a PC at the appropriate timing. A melting process of snow at room temperature was imaged every 30 s as a demonstration of the system. The high throughput tomography system adopts a scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera with a low noise and high quantum efficiency. The system achieves a scan time around 5 minutes which is three times faster than before. The images quality of the system has been compared to the existing system with Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) camera. The results have shown the advantage of the new sCMOS camera.
