Abstract
This paper exemplifies the use of X-ray tomography hardware and accompanying software for research on modified wood. Structural details on different spatial scales as well as time-dependent phenomena can be visualized, also including quantification of these structural details and probable changes due to treatment. As such, the impact of hydrophobing agents can be studied both structurally as well as regarding the efficacy of their water repellence effect, the anatomical changes of heat treated wood can be visualised and quantified at cell wall level as well as the density changes caused by these treatments, etc. X-ray tomography as such is the pre-eminent tool of the future for wood scientists in general and wood modification researchers more specifically.
