Our Services for Academia

μ-VIS welcomes collaborations and offers a range of services to internal and external academics, as well as industrial institutions. 

Our local expertise spans across various disciplines, allowing us to support research projects projects in a broad range of fields, including:

  • Materials Science
  • Biomedical Imaging, Bioengineering and Histology
  • Electronics
  • Palaeontology & Archaeology
  • Earth and Environmental Science

Our Services

We offer a comprehensive suite of services tailored to meet the diverse needs of the academic community. Our services include:

  • Hypothesis Generation Support: Collaborate with our team of experts to formulate hypotheses and research questions and explore how volumetric X-ray imaging can be deployed to provide answers.
  • Funding Bidding Support & Preliminary Data Generation: Steering on the XCT aspects of your application and preliminary data aquisition / proof-of-concept support for demonstrating the integrity and reliability of your research hypothesis.
  • Image Interpretation Support: Steering on accurate data interpretation for gaining insights from your images
  • Training

 Additionally, we can provide:

  • Image Production: Generate high-quality volume data utilising our state-of-the-art equipment
  • Image Analysis: From sample visualisation to precise measurements
  • Defect Detection: Identify and analyse defects with precision
  • Actual-Nominal Comparison: Compare real-world objects to their digital (CAD) representations for accuracy assessment (e.g. 3D printing applications and manufacturing)
  • Assembly Analysis: Analyse the assembly of complex structures
  • FE Model Generation (Meshing): modeling oriented imaging for generating accurate real -object meshes for modeling applications
  • Correlative imaging: Combination of XCT with other imaging technologies such as light and electron microscopy
  • In Situ Testing during Imaging: Perform tests directly within the imaging equipment
