Caption

Fossil microtomography scanning. Researcher positioning a Baculites fossil on a beamline (green) for a microtomography scan. This scanning technique uses high-resolution X-ray scanning (computed tomography) to record microscopic internal structure. An advanced version is synchrotron X-ray tomographic microscopy (SRXTM). This is the ID19 beamline at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), in Grenoble, France. Baculites is a straight-shelled form of ammonite. The specimen is from the French National Museum of Natural History (MNHN), Paris, France. Photographed in 2011.
