This is a sample of glass reinforced composite material set up for a high resolution #xray #computedtomography scan. On the left side of the image is the X-ray source housing and filter wheel. On the right side you can see the detector assembly. In this case, the detector assembly contains a scintillator to convert X-ray photons to visible light, an objective lens to magnify the image, and a #ccd detector. In some of the next posts we'll show you some awesome results from imaging these #fibers !
