ECE imaging researcher Chris Wyatt has collaborated with Ge Wang in the School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences to build the new SBES Multi-scale Advanced CT (SAM-CT) facility, located at the Nano Characterization and Fabrication Laboratory in the Corporate Research Center. The facility brings together various state-of-the-art CT scanners under one roof, allowing the user to acquire CT scans at various spatial resolutions — ranging from mm to 50nm. This unique combination of equipment allows the development of multi-scale methods in biological phenotyping, material characterization, and geological applications.
