A consortium of 13 institutes from 3 Universities (Graz University of Technology, Karl Franzens University of Graz, Medical University Graz) proposes to acquire an x-ray micro computed tomography (CT) machine with a resolution below 1 m. The new infrastructure will be used for basic research with a focus on the diffraction computed tomography (DCT) method for spatially resolved diffraction. Research is planned in the fields of medicine, pharmaceutical research, geology, metallurgy, and paper. In addition, an in situ module will enable measurements under controlled environmental conditions, such as temperature, gas phase, relative humidity, and mechanical stress. The new infrastructure will strengthen the research strategy of Graz University of Technology, and the close cooperation within the consortium will open new fields of research and the CT will increase the visibility of Austrian research facilities based in Graz.
