L'Association Européenne de Cristallographie (ECA) organise depuis 2021 des "webinaires déjeuner". Les groupes d'intérêt spéciaux (SIG) et les groupes d'intérêt général (GIG) de l'ECA organisent à tour de rôle un webinaire adapté à la communauté des cristallographes au sens large. Le 29ième webinaire sera diffusé le jeudi 6 juin 2024 à 13h:   BEATS: synchrotron computed microtomography for the Middle East par Gianluca Iori (SESAME, Allan, Al Salt, Jordanie). Inscriptions ici.

The BEAmline for Tomography at SESAME (BEATS) operates a X-ray microtomography station providing service to scientists from archaeology, cultural heritage, medicine, biology, geology, materials and environmental sciences. The beamline has a total length of 45 m, and an insertion device providing high photon flux and a usable beam size of 70×15 mm2 at the sample. The partial spatial coherence of Synchrotron illumination is preserved, allowing phase-contrast imaging of low-absorbing samples. Filtered white and monochromatic beam modalities are available. Full field radiography and tomography with a resolution below 1 micron and scan duration down to few seconds are achieved. In my contribution, I will present the first semester of results from the first synchrotron microCT station in the Middle East.

BEATS was established in a collaboration between research facilities in the Middle East (SESAME and the Cyprus Institute), and European synchrotron radiation facilities ALBA-CELLS (Spain), DESY (Germany), the ESRF (France), Elettra (Italy), INFN (Italy), PSI (Switzerland) and SOLARIS (Poland).
