Michael Salamon, Nils Reims and Dr. Michael Böhnel from Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS have achieved decisive progress in computed tomography. For the first time, it is now possible to analyze even very large objects with X-ray technology. XXL computed tomography produces high-resolution, high-contrast images in 3D. The technology enables, for example, the analysis of electric cars after a crash test. Historical relics can also be examined – and even a dinosaur skull.
