X-ray tomography provides a 3-dimensional interior view of a variety of materials ranging from natural rocks to batteries, biological systems, and device parts. XCT of rock samples will provide 3D visualization of pore structure and pore connectivity at a spatial resolution of approximately 10 microns for large diameter cores. The large size of the sample environment and the variety of x-ray targets will allow in situ experiments of fluid displacement studies such as non-aqueous phase organic or super critical CO2 studies. This instrument will be used to study natural rocks and sedimentary cores from the Hanford site, providing complementary data to other EMSL Subsurface Flow and Transport Capabilities. This data will allow decisionmakers to manage contaminants in the natural environment more effectively, and help develop processes for storing CO2 in underground repositories. EMSL is a Department of Energy national scientific user facility located at PNNL.
