We have the right technology.
We offer highly accurate multi-scale microstructural investigations of challenging geological, chemical and biological samples down to nanometer resolution. Our analyses combine cutting-edge preparation methodologies with automated processing of the Gigapixel image maps in the cm- to nm-scale for porosity, 3D pore connectivity, pore fluid and microstructural assessment.
We have the experience.
We have over ten years of experience in the oil- and gas industry as well as nuclear waste storage.
Summary Characterization of the wide range of pore sizes present in many carbonate rock types requires the integration of optical and electron microscopy. At MaP we developed such a routine in order to capture the porosity in a representative way. At first,
Summary Physical porosity is a crucial property in shales as it controls the storage capacity to a large extent and forms the transport system. Imaging the visible pore space, the associated mineralogy, and organic matter provide insight into the relevant
Triple-beam Ar-Ion-Milling with a Rotary Stage to Decorate Grain Boundaries and Substructures in Rock Salt
Summary Decoration of grain boundaries in polycrystalline rocks has a long tradition in Structural Geology as in a monomineralic rock the recrystallized grain size is a good indicator for the paleostress conditions. Understanding the mechanical properties of rock salt and
