Direct 3D imaging of coarsely structured materials.

In larger granular beds 3D imaging may be used to study liquid distribution and percolation paths.

It is also possible to study phase separation of multicomponent systems, on progressive freezing/melting, a phenomena applicable to many food stuffs, as well as biological samples.

Current resolution is typically 0.1mm in 100mm for 3D structures.
