ICON has two experiment positions that are used for imaging (2 and 3). The methods used are:
- Stroboscopic imaging
- Real time imaging
- Energy selective imaging
- Grating interferometry
The sample can be positioned with the motorized sample table. The table allows linear translations in the plane perpendicular to the beam directions and rotation around the vertical axis. The rotation is used for tomographic acquisitions. All motions are remotely controlled by the beam-line control system from the beam-line control room.
