Science3D is an Open Access project to archive and curate scientific data and make them available to everyone interested in scientific endeavours. Science3D focusses mainly on 3D tomography data from biological samples, simply because theses object make it comparably easy to understand the concepts and techniques.
The data come primarily from the imaging beamlines of the Helmholtz Center Geesthacht (HZG), which make use of the uniquely bright and coherent X-rays of the Petra3 synchrotron. Petra3 - like many other photon and neutron sources in Europe and World-wide - is a fantastic instrument to investigate the microscopic detail of matter and organisms. The experiments at photon science beamlines hence provide unique insights into all kind of scientific fields, ranging from medical applications to plasma physics. The success of these experiments demands enormous efforts of the scientists and quite some investments
