The "Centre for X-ray Tomography" of the Ghent University (UGCT) is an interdisciplinary research facility which performs research on the X-ray micro/nanotomography technique and its applications in a scientific context. UGCT is presently an interfacultary collaboration between three UGent research groups:

The facility has developed and built several modular micro- and nanoCT scanners, uses in-house developed reconstruction reconstruction and 3D analysis software and is the origin of two spin-off companies (Inside Matters and X-Ray Engineering)

UGCT provides services for universities and research institutes in the context of joint research projects (both long-term and short-term). For more information, please contact us.
