Porosity imaging in porous media using synchrotron tomographic techniques

By M. Betson, J. Barker, Paul Barnes, T. Atkinson and A.C. Jupe


This paper describes novel uses of synchrotron radiation in examining porosity distributions within porous media. Tomographic energy dispersive diffraction imaging and Tomographic X-ray fluorescence have been combined within one measurement method and used to highlight the porosity distribution in a typical sample of English Chalk
