TESCAN’s dynamic microCT shows how materials behave under changing conditions through real-time, not time-lapse, visualizations. This video demonstrates salt crystallization in a small Christmas tree. The tree was mounted inside the scanner of the UniTOM HR with its base in a solution of amonium sulphate, allowing the solution to go up through the tree and evaporate at its branches. There, the salt forms crystals, resembling the needles of a pine tree. The experiment was done over a total time of 7.5 hours. In that time, 88 scans of 2.5 minutes each were performed.
