Non-destructive characterization of electrospun fibers with 3D high-resolution X-ray microscopy
09 Mar 2021

Imaging of biomaterials composed of low-Z elements can be challenging with typical X-ray absorption-contrast imaging, in which the pixel grey level and electronic density of the chemical elements in the sample are directly related. The Zeiss Xradia 810 Ultra with Zernike phase-contrast technology presents a new solution for imaging these types of specimens.

In this webinar, Dr. Juliana Martins, leader of the X-ray imaging group within the Chair of Microstructured Material Design at Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, will discuss the benefits and applications of three-dimensional high-resolution Zernike phase-contrast X-ray imaging for qualitative morphological characterization of biomaterials, with a focus on electrospun fibers. Dr. Martins will be available to answer questions following her talk in a moderated Q&A.
