    X-ray Microscopic Comparison of Shark Denticles

    Figure 1: Photograph of 3D printed shark denticles extracted from micro-CT imaging data  Biomimicry of Shark Denticles Although it is commonly known that most fish species have scales, it may be less widely known that shark skin goes one step further with the presence of denticles more like teeth than traditional scales. While …

    X-ray Microscopic Examination of the Coffee Roasting Process

    Figure 1: Photograph of beans moving from unroasted, to medium roast, to dark roast  Roasting coffee beans causes meaningful changes in their microstructure, such as the increase in total pore volume, porosity, and density due to the rupture of bonds in the internal structure of the coffee beans during roasting. These changes …
