The Center for Quantitative Imaging (CQI) is a multi-user research facility designed to serve the microCT imaging needs of the Pennsylvania State University and the broader scientific community. This facility houses a state-of-the art General Electric v|tome|x L300 nano/microCT that offers high resolution imaging with feature detectability of 1 micron, and 1200 mm maximum sample height. This non-destructive system provides three-dimensional imaging of opaque materials, data output is quantitative and can serve as input for numerical modeling. CQI focuses on two main areas of research: monitoring internal processes in experimental systems and characterizing complex 3D structure and material composition in natural and synthetic systems.
