MicroCT Rotating Target and a Holiday Fruit Cake
In the Sustainable Archaeology Ancient Images Lab, we've been performing proof of concept tests using the rotating target on the microCT. The rotating target enables the user to "up" the flux (amount of power) that can be delivered to the target, without degrading the spot size - essentially allowing for faster scanning without compromising the excellent resolution of the machine. This give us the ability to greatly increase the amount of power we can use in a scan, allowing us to scan very dense objects, including meteorites, or, holiday fruit cake!
