Application for both higher-speed synchrotron imaging and
lower-speed CTLab imaging.
Design supercritical-condition experiments to target specific dynamic processes: wettability controls on CO₂ interface movements; solubility kinetics as a function of changing pressure, temperature, salinity, interfacial area; Ostwald ripening (monitored via curvature evolution) under “equilibrium” conditions.
Execute “quasi-static” tomographic experiments to capture time-lapse 3D series (ANU CTLab or synchrotron).
Innovate image analysis protocols to accurately quantify micro-scale properties (incl. programming new quantification and dynamic artifact removal algorithms).
Identify quantitative links between microscale parameters and dynamic processes.
Design of experiments with consideration to acquisition timeframes, process thermodynamics and kinetics, unavoidable image artifacts.
Implementation/application of new and existing image analysis algorithms.
Execution of experiments at synchrotron or ANU CTLab.
Quantify links to dynamic processes and cross-validate (numerically) with industry partner.
