MICASOL Soleil synchrotron
MICASOL is a high-tech platform on the Soleil synchrotron. It can be used to study the structure and behaviour of materials (by X analysis) at all scales, from the molecular and nanometric to the mesoscopic and macroscopic.
For example, MICASOL can perform a non-destructive analysis of the internal microstructure of solid polymer foams (to a resolution of 250 nm).
