Almost every area of science has been revolutionized by our ability to collect two-dimensional images of increasingly fine detail, ranging from radio signals of far-off solar systems, to high-resolution electron microscopy images. With the advent of digital image capture, tomography – the art of reconstructing a sliceable virtual three-dimensional copy of the object from two-dimensional images – is becoming increasingly popular across a range of imaging modalities and length scales. One area attracting a lot of attention is the area of submicron X-ray tomography, popularly dubbed X-ray nanotomography.
