The University of Manchester at Harwell - Introduction to The Henry Moseley X-Ray Imaging Facility

Apr 22
Book Event

The University of Manchester Henry Moseley X-ray Imaging Facility (HMXIF) offline scanning capabilities, research examples of how different HMXIF equipment was used and why.

Dr Tim Burnett, Director of The University of Manchester’s Henry Moseley X-ray Imaging facility (HMXIF) and the National Research Facility for Lab X-ray CT ( will talk about the capabilities of lab-based X-ray computed tomography (CT). He will introduce X-ray CT as a technique and talk about multiscale and in situ imaging from the nanoscale to the macroscale. He will describe some of the basic requirements for doing nanoscale and microscale imaging and how the different scales can be used correlatively and also connected to other techniques such as focussed ion beam (FIB) serial sectioning. Also he will discuss the considerations for setting up in situ experiments using lab CT. He will cover examples from biomaterials, composites, aerospace and nuclear alloys and geology. Lastly he will talk about the data analysis challenges that you often have to face when dealing with multiscale and in situ experiment data.

Registration is necessary for this event via the Eventbrite page (registration closes at 10am on Wednesday 21 April).
