Multimodal investigation of 3D grain structure and…

Heterogeneities in the local microstructure and strain distributions in deformed metals are of critical importance for subsequent mechanical processing. It is thus essential to understand the formation of such local heterogeneities and to be able to… Read more

Grain boundary percolation studied by LabDCT

Grain boundaries (GBs) in a polycrystalline material provide faster diffusion paths (by orders of magnitude) compared to the intragranular lattice, hence damage will accumulate when a connected pathway of failure-susceptible GBs span the material. Th… Read more

Xnovo PhD prize awarded at Danscatt 2022

The prize for this year’s best Danscatt PhD thesis was awarded to Jette Katja Mathiesen for her thesis, When One Is Not Enough: From Mono– to Bimetallic Nanocrystals with a Look towards High–Entropy Alloys, conducted at the Department of Chemistry, U… Read more

GrainMapper3D version 3.1

We are proud to announce the release of GrainMapper3D version 3.1, boosted to be more than three times faster than its predecessor. GrainMapper3D version 3.1 gives faster access to larger and more representative 3D maps of grain orientations and morp… Read more

LabDCT Advanced Acquistion

The introduction of three new advanced acquisition strategies for lab-based diffraction contrast tomography (LabDCT) – named Helical Phyllotaxis, Helical Phyllotaxis Raster, and Helical Phyllotaxis HART  – enables grain mapping of longer, larger, as… Read more

Full-component 3D fiber mapping of fiber-reinforce…

An efficient and industry-friendly solution for non-destructive 3D fiber mapping is now realizable thanks to a novel robot-assisted X-ray imaging technology. First results of applying this solution to an injection-molded fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP… Read more

Lab-based DCT for quantitative texture analysis of…

Electrical steels with high Si contents are widely used in electrical power transformers, motors and generators. Texture is the most important property for electrical steel as the grain orientations strongly influence the magnetisation and electrical… Read more

Xnovo PhD prize awarded at Danscatt 2021

The prize for this year’s best Danscatt PhD thesis was awarded to Nikolaj Roth for his thesis, Direct-Space Analysis of Correlated Disorder in Crystals, conducted at the Center for Materials Crystallography, Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University… Read more

Harnessing LabDCT to understand dynamics of liquid…

When a liquid metal like gallium penetrates along the grain boundaries within a polycrystalline solid metal like aluminum, replacement of the original grain boundaries with the liquid layer generally causes intergranular brittle fracture in otherwise… Read more

Welcome to Azat Slyamov

It’s a pleasure to welcome Azat Slyamov to the Xnovo team. Azat finished a PhD from DTU Energy, where he developed new methodologies for acquisition and reconstruction of coherent X-ray microscopy data. As part of his PhD, funded by the EU Horizon 20… Read more
