The TOMCAT-beamline of the Swiss Light Source (SLS) at the Paul Scherrer Institute (Villingen, Switzerland) is a high-energy high-precision X-ray source. TOMCAT stands for tomographic microscopy and coherent radiology experiments and it allows conducting ultra-high-resolution Synchrotron-based X-ray Tomographic Microscopy (SRXTM).
To support our research on seismic wave propagation effects and attenuation and dispersion mechanisms in partially saturated porous and fractured rocks, both in the lab and computationally, we also use the TOMCAT-facilities.
We regularly went to the TOMCAT-beamline during several projects. Browse through the individual projects:
