The "Centre for X-ray Tomography" of the Ghent University (UGCT) is a 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 Radiation Physics research (Department of Physics and Astronomy), the Sedimentary Geology and Engineering Geology research group (Department of Geology and Soil Science) and the Laboratory of Wood Technology (Department Forest and Water Management).

The facility has developed and built several modular micro- and nanoCT scanners, develops the reconstruction software package Octopus and the 3D analysis software package Morpho+ and is the origin of two spin-off companies (inCT 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.
